Week 1 @ Shoals

The first week of Introduction to Marine Mammal Biology 2015 is off to a great start.  We have seven students who are giving it their all – it’s a lot of material to cram into two weeks!  Highlights include: hikes around Appledore Island, a skulls and skeletons lab where students solved bone puzzles, a whale watch, a Duck Island seal survey, bioacoustics lab, porpoise dissection, and of course – lots of gorgeous sunsets.
