ABC Animal Training is excited to offer an in-depth, hands-on experience 
in the field of marine mammal behavior and science. This workshop will 
focus on environmental education, examine the role of eco tourism such 
as whale watching and dolphin interactive programs and explore the 
impact these activities have on the humans and animals involved.

The informal setting of the course is designed to stimulate inquiry and 
active learning.  Students will be exposed to an overview of the marine 
mammal science field and gain both a local and global perspective on 
current issues. Participants will interact with expert researchers from 
varying backgrounds and actively observe animals both in wild 
environments and living under human care. Topics to be discussed include 
field research techniques, collecting and analyzing data, and how to 
develop critical thinking skills. Ultimately, students will gain an 
appreciation for the significance and role of marine mammals within the 
marine ecosystem and learn about marine conservation issues and our 
roles as leaders in animal management, policy and care.

This workshop is specifically designed for educators and people 
interested in pursuing a career in marine mammals science.

Location: Los Cabos ,Baja California, Mexico
Date: 16 - 20 February 2015
