The Mexican Society for Marine Mammalogy (SOMEMMA) is pleased to announce
its *third biennial marine mammalogy summer school, the III-E3M,* which
will take place in La Paz, July 3-8, 2017.

III-E3M offers theoretical and practical knowledge on the biology, ecology,
evolution, natural history, health and conservation of marine mammals. The
summer school is structured in two modules, a basic one that is aimed at
undergraduate students with limited or no experience with marine mammals,
and an advanced module, aimed at graduate students, who select one of four
themes: 1) ecology, 2) bioacustics and population monitoring, 3) genetics,
4) health.

More than 30 mexican and international researchers participate as
instructors in the summer school, which includes a hands-on field trip to
Espiritu Santo National Park aboard the Narwal research vessel.

Our previous summer schools were targeted to Mexican students. This year,
SOMEMMA broadens its scope and is open to international participants
(please note that the basic module is taught in spanish, while the advanced
modules are taught in spanish and english).

More details on the program, instructors and registration costs can be

Hope to see you at La Paz!

Think of all the men who never knew the answers. Think of all those who
never even cared. Still, there are some who ask why, who want to know, who
dare to try.
