        Unique Summer Opportunity in Marine Conservation Biology

The Duke University Marine Laboratory is offering an unparalleled summer
educational opportunity from July 21 through August 22, 1997. Marine
conservation biology teaches the principles of conservation and
preservation of the coastal environment with a focus on problem solving as
well as the application of science in shaping environmental management
decisions and policy.

Distinguished faculty from around the country will assemble for this
concentrated five week program. Among the guest faculty are: Baird
Callicott, North Texas State University, Norman L. Christensen, Jr., Duke
University, John Clarke, Mote Marine Laboratory, Paul Dayton, Scripps
Institute of Oceanography, Martin Hall, Inter-American Tropical Tuna
Commission, Jane Lubchenco, Oregon State University and others from the
summer faculty at the Duke University Marine Laboratory.

In addition to the course in marine conservation biology and this
distinguished group of visitors, those enrolled in summer term II have the
opportunity to fulfill two college credits by adding on of the seven
elective courses offered at that time.

Full tuition summer scholarships are still available. Applications for
scholarships are due by March 28, 1997. Applications for Summer Term II
will be taken until July 17, 1997.
