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.
