Marine Education and Research Society course on BC's whale species and seals, sea lions, dolphins, porpoises and otters too!
The aim of this course is to enable more people to inform and inspire marine mammal conservation. This is intensive, in-classroom only, crash training for those working (or hoping to work) as whale watch naturalists, kayak guides, park staff, or others interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of the natural history and conservation of BC's marine mammals. It is not possible to only attend part of the course. Completion is recognized with a certificate of participation (North Island College students and some participating kayak guides will also undergo a written test).
Cost: $300 per person ($200 non-refundable). There is one bursary available for participation in the Port McNeill or Campbell River course. Click here for details.
