I would be grateful if you would announce the following summer 
courses (Working with Marine Mammals & Techniques and Theories of 
Animal Training) to the MARMAM mailing list.

Thanks very much,
Jenifer Zeligs-Hurley, Ph.D.

California State University Monterey Bay and Moss Landing Marine 
Laboratories http://slewths.mlml.calstate.edu/ offer one-week 
intensive summer classes open to any individuals interested animal 
training or in pursuing careers in the marine mammal field. In 
addition, hands-on internships for people of all ages and levels of 
experience are also available at the lab working with marine mammals. 
The successful completion of both courses and a five-day internship 
will earn a Certificate of Completion in Beginning Marine Mammalogy. 
The classes' instructor, Dr. Jenifer Hurley has over 20 years of 
terrestrial and aquatic animal training experience, across diverse 
disciplines including research, public display, and studio and film work.

Classes:
TECHNIQUES AND THEORIES OF ANIMAL TRAINING: Bio 348 (June 18-24,

understanding of the discipline of animal training across many 
different types of terrestrial and aquatic animals and techniques. It 
provides an exceptional background in relevant animal behavior and 
psychological principles related to the practical goal of modifying 
animal behavior.  These techniques will be demonstrated daily using 
trained sea lions at Moss Landing Marine Labs where the course is 
taught. Horses, birds, and other animals will also be used to 
demonstrate these techniques.
Students will intern at least one day at the lab assisting in the 
care and training of research-trained sea lions.  Topics covered will 
include: Captivity, Why Train? Communication, Motivation, 
Desensitization, Aggression, and Practical Training. $430.00 + $39

about marine mammals and working with them, drawing on the rich 
background of marine mammal work in the Monterey Bay area.  The 
course will include live experiences with the marine mammals at Moss 
Landing Marine Labs. This class will instruct students in captive 
marine mammal husbandry (care and maintenance), training, basic 
physiology, an overview of common research topics and techniques, as 
well as public display, education, and current issues in marine 
mammalogy.  Students will intern at least one day at the lab 
assisting in the care of research-trained California sea lions.  They 
will also gain experience in developing a resume, job interviews, and
