New Session 

Just Opened Up!

Dates:  28 July - 11 August, 2007

Our location on the Bay of Fundy is one of the few places in the world where
it is possible to study several species of whales as well as seals and
dolphins within a two-week course framework. There will be frequent field
trips at sea and on shore to observe marine mammals in their natural
habitats. Major topics include: an introduction to Bay of Fundy marine
mammals, their distribution and abundance, origin and evolution, historical
zoogeography, adaptations and community ecology as well as future prospects.
Lab sessions will include an introduction to behavioural observations as
well as dissections of seals and porpoises. Students will also conduct
individual research projects.
