If you want to learn how to conduct systematic surveys of whales and 
dolphins, there are still a limited number of places left on the Company of 
Whales and Organisation Cetacea (ORCA) survey training trip between the 22nd 
and 25th June 2007.

With expert guides you will learn survey techniques, which could be of great 
career value, whilst onboard the cruise-ferry Pride of Bilbao.  This 
training course allows you to learn survey techniques whilst travelling 
through one of Europe’s cetacean hot-spots, the Bay of Biscay.

There will be talks and training and, with your new-found skills, there 
could be future opportunities to carry out ORCA surveys in the Bay of Biscay 
and Norwegian waters. Places are limited (and we have already received a 
number of bookings) so don’t miss this unique training opportunity. Reserve 
your place by e-mailing David Smith (dave at orcaweb.org.uk) with your name, 
e-mail and postal address.  Places are offered on a first come first serve 
basis.  A percentage of every booking goes towards Organisation Cetacea.

course will run from Friday 22nd June to Monday 25th June 2007.  Cost: £235
