Marine birds have feathers, and marine mammals breathe air. But in almost every other way, these ocean denizens bear almost no resemblance at all to their counterparts on land. This two-session workshop introduces participants to the identification, foraging strategies, behavior, and nesting/breeding ecology of marine birds and mammals typical of the southeastern Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. Join Dr. Chris Haney, founder of Terra Mar Applied Sciences. Registrants for the class have priority to register for a pelagic field trip on July 6.  The trip will depart from Hatteras Village on the Outer Banks, North Carolina.  There is no limit on registrations for the workshop but the pelagic trip is limited to the capacity of the boat (19 people).
