BI/PS 247 Bimini Field Course in Cetacean Ecology for Biology/Psychology Majors and
 Non-Majors elective (3 Credits)
Summer 2020: May 26 - June 1, 2020
Please apply before March 1, 2020!

Led by Dr. Deirdre Yeater in the Sacred Heart University Psychology department in collaboration with Dolphin Communication Project, this course will examine the behavioral and social ecology of coastal cetaceans, particularly Atlantic spotted and bottlenose dolphins.  You will enjoy a hands-on learning experience with wild dolphins, in the beautiful waters surrounding the island of Bimini in the Bahamas.  On the program, you will earn three credits while learning to record and analyze dolphin behaviors.  You will also learn about ecotourism and human impacts on the marine environment.  The field work at Bimini will consist of 4 to 5 hour boat surveys.  If the group is able to make underwater observations, you will be assisting in the use of underwater slates, video cameras, and digital still cameras.  The number of students accepted will be limited by the size of the research vessel.  Therefore, you should apply as soon as possible.  You MUST be able to swim and snorkel as part of the program.

Application Deadline March 1!
