abroad course entitled: Field Ecology: Behavior and Conservation of sea lions.
 This 6-credit course will be taught at ASU and at sea lions breeding
colonies on islands in the Gulf of California, <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City
 w:st="on">Baja</st1:City>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Mexico</st1:country-region></st1:place>.
 Focus will be on the integration of behavior and conservation biology in
the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:State w:st="on">California</st1:State></st1:place>
sea lion. Students will learn and apply field methods commonly used to study
pinniped populations.  Before embarking on our field trip, students will
learn the biology of marine mammals and ecology of the sea lions and receive
training on the field methods commonly used to estimate population size and to
measure behavior on pinnipeds at <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Arizona</st1:PlaceName>
 <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">State</st1:PlaceType> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">University</st1:PlaceType></st1:place>.
 The group will be camping on Islands in the Gulf of California, <st1:place
w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">Mexico</st1:country-region></st1:place>,
with no facilities. Outdoor experience and the ability to work in difficult,
hot conditions for long hours is a must.  More details can be gained at: <a
