MPSC is holding Protected Species Observer (also known as Marine Mammal
Observer) training on June 10-11 in Boston, Massachusetts. This class will meet
in downtown Boston, and will include a cruise to the Stellwagen Bank National
Marine Sanctuary, one of the top whale-watching destinations in the world!  This
will provide opportunity to gain experience identifying the animals while at
sea.  We will also practice using SLR cameras and discuss manual settings for
wildlife photography.


This BOEM/BSEE-compliant PSO certification course covers the regulations for
reducing seismic survey impacts to marine mammals and sea turtles, 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), a
whale-watching cruise to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and advice
on applying to PSO positions.
