Marine Mammal Biology (Fall) /Conservation Ecology (Spring) Program and
Undergraduate Internships (http://semesterbythebay.org/internships/)
available this Spring and/or Fall Semesters at the University of Alaska
Anchorage-KPC-KBC in Homer, Alaska. Semester by the Bay is accepting
applications from students interested in hands-on placed-based study of
conservation ecology (Spring Semester) and/or Marine Mammal Biology (Fall
Semester) in the beautiful seaside town of Homer, Alaska that may result in
the receipt of an occupational endorsement certificate. Our fall courses
offer students numerous unique experiential learning opportunities in the
lab and field, such as the behavioral ecology of beluga, humpback and
killer whales, sea otters, Steller sea lions and harbor seals; acoustics of
harbor porpoises and belugas; marine mammal skeletal articulation; seining,
identification and articulation of estuarine and marine fishes; behavior of
marine mammals in estuarine and nearshore environments. Spring courses
center around individual conservation ecology research. Through Exploration
Ecology students identify their own burning conservation questions and
receive assistance designing, conducting and reporting real projects.
Additionally, students in both semesters participate in community-based
*internships*and/or service-learning volunteer opportunities with
governmental or non-governmental researchers while studying with us at the
Kachemak Bay Campus of Kenai Peninsula College. KPC offers *in-state
tuition* for all US students, and many internships include free or
significantly reduced housing with our community-partner agencies (USFWS,
NOAA, KBNERR, AMNWR, Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies, Alaska Dept. of
Fish & Game, Kachemak Bay Land Trust).

Internships still available for Spring 22. Please see
