Travelecoology launches a new Summer Field Course "Building Baseline Data on Cetaceans" in Barcelona (Spain) from July 27th - August 4th, 2014.
The field course is geared to students of marine biology and environmental sciences that wish to build basic skills to undertake monitoring studies of cetaceans. During the Course, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the whales and dolphins of the Mediterranean; undertake training in survey design, data collection and interpretation; apply monitoring techniques and build experience deploying commonly used acoustic devices.
The course combines structured lectures with fieldwork aboard a sailing vessel. Directed by a team of biologists from SUBMON, participants will contribute to build knowledge on the abundance and distribution of cetaceans in the underwater canyons of Maresme and Palamos, while enjoying the beauty of Costa Brava and its deep blue Mediterranean waters.
