On behalf of the Scientific Committee of the Master, I am pleased to inform that a new Master on Large Marine Vertebrates is open at University of Bologna.
You can find a short description of the Master below and the link to the webpage, where you can find more details. Please feel free to contact me (annalisa.zaccaroni at unibo.it) or the tutor (master.lmvs at unibo.it) for more information.

The first level Master in Large Marine Vertebrate Sciences is an International Master, held in English, specifically designed to give professionals and young graduates theoretical knowledge on a large variety of aspects of large marine vertebrate management and conservation, starting from the basics (physiology, biology, anatomy, etc.) and including also more specific competencies, like welfare, diseases and pathology, legislation concerning marine vertebrates, monitoring, management in the wild and under human care, as well as communication and scientific writing skills.
The special strength of this Master Course is its practical approach, allowing the participants to get in contact with/to immerse into the current work of different entities involved in the study and management of large marine vertebrates, both in the wild and under human care, with a 20 CFU (500 hours) internship and with a mandatory, immersive field research trip with the Dolphin Communication Project (DCP) to the DCP Director's research field site on Roatan, Honduras. DCP's study site is at The Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) at Anthony's Key Resort. DCP's Director, KM Dudzinski, has been studying the bottlenose dolphins at RIMS since 2003, with several research papers detailing findings related to comparisons between wild and captive bottlenose dolphin social behavior. Both DCP and RIMS offer educational programs that focus on blending a hands-on field experience with an introduction to science and application of the scientific method.
