MPSC is holding Protected Species Observer (also known as Marine Mammal
Observer) training on October 7-8 in Charleston, South Carolina. This class will
include a tour of the Sea Turtle Care Center at the South Carolina Aquarium,
where we can discuss key identifying traits and behaviors of different species
of sea turtles while viewing them in person.  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
locate and identify the animals. We will also discuss manual settings for
professional wildlife photography, and practice using SLR cameras and binoculars
with reticles.  
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),
the tour of the Sea Turtle Care Center, admission to the South Carolina
Aquarium, and advice on applying to PSO positions.
