BIOL 341E - Cognition, Behavior and Conservation of Marine Mammals (Extended Study)
This extended study course to the Florida Keys focuses on current theories, research, and methods in behavioral and cognitive studies of marine mammals, with an emphasis on bottle-nosed dolphins. Because animal behavioral research and conservation are intimately linked, the course also considers conservation issues relevant to marine organisms and their environment. The course includes hands-on and interactive experiences with the resident pod of dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center, as well as classroom seminars and workshops, live marine mammal demonstrations and observations, and discussions with expert trainers, researchers, and educators.
