Mammal Field Techniques with SUBA certification has 8 spots available as of
this posting. If Spring Break week is important to you, please plan to
register as soon as possible.

The MCERC field station in Puerto Rico, USA houses all program participants
while we focus on building field skills and resumes for anybody interested
in marine mammal science. These positions are also suitable for
internships, and many of our students receive up to 3 undergraduate credit
hours through independent study with a faculty member from their campus.

The program fee covers room and meals for the week long session,
instruction, transportation to all field excursions, and equipment
necessary for the program (SCUBA certification requires minimal, personal
equipment provided by students). There is no cost associated with
participating in data collection during the Humpback Whale Field Intensive
program. During this program, students are critical members of our data
collection team.

The program fee does not include travel to and from Boquerón, Puerto Rico,
USA. Citizens of the USA do not need a passport to travel to Puerto Rico
(at this time), the currency is the US Dollar, and most major cell phone
carriers have service on the island.

There is no application process required. Interested people should visit
