*Global Fellowships in Marine Conservation (Summer Term II)*

*Application Deadline: February 1, 2013*

                  The Duke University Marine Laboratory is offering an
unparalleled educational opportunity from July 8 to August 9, 2013.  Duke’s
Integrated Marine Conservation Program focuses on principles necessary for
the conservation and preservation of coastal and ocean environments during
an intensive 5-week summer session.  The focus is on interdisciplinary
problem solving using biophysical and social science to address real world
environmental problems.  This program is a tremendous opportunity for
students and professionals at any level to think about conservation biology
and policy in an environment full of students, faculty and practicioners
grappling with the same issues.  The core class (BIO 270A/ENV 270A
Conservation Biology and Policy) involves field trips, discussion groups
and lectures and visits with Distinguished Conservation Scholars each
week.  Students will leave the class with an appreciation of the policy
process, as well as with grounding in the fundamentals of marine

                  Global Fellowships in Marine Conservation will be awarded
on a competitive basis.  The Fellowship fully covers travel expenses, room
and board, and tuition for both BIO 270A/ENV 270A Conservation Biology and
Policy plus one specialized elective course.  Electives (subject to
availability) include: Biology and Conservation of Sea Turtles, Marine
Mammals, Marine Ecology and Marine Invertebrate Zoology.

                  The Global Fellowship application deadline for summer,
2013, is *February 1, 2013*.
