2005 training courses on cetacean research and conservation

The CETACEAN RESEARCH & RESCUE UNIT (CRRU) announces its 2005 training courses on cetacean research and conservation in the outer Moray Firth, N= E Scotland.
These courses are intended for anyone looking to gain active, hands-on experience in cetacean research and conservation work. Led by an accomplished team of marine mammal biologists, the course will alternate between field data collection and practical experiences at sea, rescue protocols for live-stranded whales and dolphins, and theoretical seminars= on all aspects of cetacean biology, research, conservation and management. A= s you learn and apply the principles of field research design during your participation in the CRRU's on-going field studies, you will gain a perso= nal understanding of the issues which drive the research, rescue and conservation activities of this established European whale and dolphin organisation.
The courses will run from May to Oct at a cost of 650 GBP (approx 935 Eur= os; 1,220 USD) for 12 days (commencing on a Sunday and terminating on a Thursday). This will cover you for all your accommodation and food costs, full equipment needs, and all other associated costs in the field during your stay with us.
