There are a few spots available in Protected Species Observer (also known as
Marine Mammal Observer) training on November 18-19 in Galveston, TX at the Moody
Gardens Aquarium.  This class will also visit the NOAA Sea Turtle Facility,
where we can discuss the identifying traits and behaviors of different species
and age classes of sea turtles, while viewing the animals in person, a value
which cannot be obtained in viewing static pictures.  This BOEM/BSEE-compliant
PSO certification course covers the regulations for reducing seismic survey
impacts to marine mammals and sea turtles, objectively documenting animal
behavior, and how to visually locate and identify the animals. 
Course comprehension is measured with examinations on regulations and animal
identification.  Successful completion of this course provides professional
Protected Species Observer Certification.  Lunch is provided and included in the
course fee (college/graduate/government discounts available), along with various
identification guides and regulatory documents (which will be yours to keep),
admission to Moody Gardens, the tour, and advice on applying to PSO positions.

MPSC is also holding PSO training at the Loggerhead MarineLife Center in Juno,
Beach FL on February 25-26, 2017.  For more information, please contact Angela
at ABostwick at PSOCertifications.com, by phone at 832-523-2402, or visit the
