The Coastal Ecosystems Research Foundation is a non-profit organisation 
offering 7-day courses in marine mammal research techniques. Courses are 
open to the general public - no previous experience necessary. Research 
is focussed this year on the feeding behaviour, movements, and abundance 
of grey whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, killer whales and humpback 
whales, off Cape Caution, BC, Canada.

Courses are taught from a 40' sailboat, 16' powerboats, and from shore. 
Participants are incorporated directly into the research team for the 
duration of the course, and have the opportunity to learn techniques first-
hand from working biologists. In addition to the field research techniques, 
the course also includes instruction and hands-on experience in sailing.
Course cost includes tuition, all meals, return transportation by floatplane
from Port Hardy to the base camp, and tent accomodation.

Cost: $1400 (CAD) $1075 (USD)
       (Student prices available some dates)

Dates: June 30 - July 6, 6-12, 14-20, 20-26, 28-August 3
       August 3-9, 11-17, 17-23, 25-31, 31 - September 6.
