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.
