The Whale Museum in Friday Harbor, WA, has been training marine naturalists since 1994. Because of the pandemic, we have decided to offer our 2020 marine naturalist training program (MNTP) summer session virtually. Dates for this session are: July 16, 17, 18, 20, 21 and 22 (with one day off on July 19). Our marine naturalist training course is an intensive 6-day overview of the natural history of the San Juan Islands and the marine waters of Washington and Southern British Columbia (known as the Salish Sea). This course includes an in-depth treatment of the ecology and conservation of local marine species, including cetaceans (especially Southern Resident killer whales), pinnipeds, mustelids, and marine invertebrates and birds. Not only will participants learn identification and biology of species but also about TWM's marine mammal research (San Juan County Marine Mammal Stranding Network, Marine Mammals Sighting Network/Database, Be Whale Wise laws and guidelines and Soundwatch Boater Education Program, and collaboration in shore based observation/acoustic research at Lime Kiln Point State Park. Presentations will be given by highly trained local naturalists, environmental educators, and scientists. The upcoming summer session will be a dynamic, high-quality virtual experience that leaves graduates qualified as a regional professional or volunteer naturalist. Tuition is $425 for members of The Whale Museum/Orca Adopters or $475 for non-members.
