Aloha all,
UH-Hilo will be offering Biology of Marine Mammals (MARE 390/390L) this 
summer from June 22 – July 31.  The course will provide a Comprehensive 
investigation of a diverse group of highly adapted marine vertebrates. 
Whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea lions, walruses, manatees, 
dugongs, sea otters and polar bears will be covered. Focus will be on 
taxonomy, anatomy and physiology, behavior, reproductive ecology, 
adaptations to the marine environment, and conservation and management. 
Field and lab techniques employed by professional marine mammal 
biologists including shore and boat-based surveys, photo-identification, 
and acoustic sampling. Investigations will focus on local species of 
marine mammals.
Attached is a copy of the UH-Hilo Marine Science Summer Catalog along

lab.
Please forward to any and all students who might be interested in a
