·  A supporting document of no more than 500 words answering ONE of the following:
1.       How do you respond to a passenger who is disappointed with the trip (ex. no whale sightings, not close enough to animals, number of dolphins, etc) and continues by commenting that they should go to Seaworld?
2.       What conservation efforts do you believe should be established in Southern New Jersey for Marine Mammal protection and how could it be implemented?
3.       Why would research of Marine Mammals in their natural habitat, using photo identification, and data collection be useful and important?
