Duke Marine Lab Offers Conservation Biology and Policy
Summer Term II (July 11 to August 12, 2011) at the Duke Marine Lab features Conservation Biology and Policy, which teaches principles of conservation and preservation of the coastal and oceanic environment. The focus is on interdisciplinary problem solving - using natural and social science theory to resolve real-world environmental problems. Students explore the origins of biodiversity and ecological mechanisms of biodiversity loss at genetic, species, and ecosystems levels. They also examine theory and practice of biodiversity conservation using socioeconomic, institutional, and ecological frameworks. Co-taught by Duke University Professors Doug Nowacek (conservation biology) and Mike Orbach (policy and marine affairs).

Distinguished visiting speakers supplement regular course material.  Current speakers include pioneering marine researchers, conservationists and communicators such as Lye Lyn Heng, Associate Professor of Law, National University of Singapore, Dr. Asbury Sallenger, Oceanographer, U.S. Geological Survey, and Dawn M. Martin, President, SEA WEB.

Enrollment deadline is July 4, 2011 (participants will be accepted after the deadline if space is available). Tuition: $2,670. Tuition for an additional elective course (Biology and Conservation of Sea Turtles, Marine Mammals, Marine Invertebrate Zoology or Marine Ecology): $3,560.
