Marine Mammal Field Techniques (MMFT) internship program in Puerto Rico, USA

Hi All,

Please share freely with folks who may benefit from a field intensive
training course aimed at building skills for field research. I am posting
the Tropical Marine and Coastal Ecology Program on this email, in addition
to the MMFT program, as both sessions offer valuable field skill training
with applications for marine mammal research.

The programs we have open for registration now include:

Ø  *Tropical Marine and Coastal Ecology in Collaboration with University of
Alaska (UAS)* Southeast. May 05-12 (8 days!) This can be taken as an
internship with MCERC, or for credit hours through University of Alaska.
Ask for details for the credit hour option through UAS. Register through
the Education Hub for the MCERC option (no credit hour fees, non-credit
hour option). Program fee for the MCERC option without credit hours =
$900.00 USD. There are 3 spots currently available in this session for
people wishing to participate.



Ø  *Marine Mammal Field Techniques* (MMFT) program April 17-23, 2016. If
you want to register for the MMFT you will navigate the “Field Intensive
Programs under "Course Categories". Program fee = $1300.00 USD There are 6
spots currently available in this session.



Ø   *FILLED FOR 2016!!!* *Humpback Whale Field Intensive Program *(HWFI)
(one week sessions from January through March, 2016).  The HWFI program has
its own Course Category on the Education Hub. This will be re-posted in
August for the 2017 field season.



Program fees cover course curriculum, transportation to and from all field
excursions, all expenses associated with field excursions, 3 meals a day,
and a bed in the field house in Boquerón, Puerto Rico, USA (steps away from
the beach!). The program fee does not cover the cost of travel to and from
the field house in Puerto Rico, USA. Details are posted in the Education
Hub.


The summer schedule has not been posted yet. Stay tuned for the schedule of
programs coming soon!


 Travel for these sessions can be booked at any time after enrollment. We
run sessions in the winter regardless of whether a session fills. Please
feel free to book your travel when you are ready. *The “Travel Tips
document on the MCERC website and Education Hub will be very helpful.*


Thanks for passing this along!
