	Duke University Integrated Marine Conservation Program

	The Nicholas School of the Environment Marine Laboratory at Duke
University is offering an unparalleled educational opportunity from July 12
to August 13, 1999.  Duke's Integrated Marine Conservation Program teaches
the principles necessary for the conservation and preservation of the coastal
and oceanic environment.  The focus is on interdisciplinary problem
solving--using natural and social science theory to resolve real world
environmental problems. 

	The Duke summer faculty will be joined by distinguished scholars from
around the country for this intensive five week program.  Visiting faculty
include: Kai Lee, Williams College; Bonnie J. McCay, Rutgers University; John
McQuaid, The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana); and Peter B. Moyle,
University of California at Davis. 

	Participants in the Integrated Marine Conservation Program usually
enroll in the program's 'core' course (Conservation Biology and Policy) and
one of six elective courses offered concurrently.  Enrollment in any one
course is also possible. 

	Scholarships are available, including several earmarked for
international students.  In order to receive full consideration, applications
for general scholarships must be received by March 1. Applications for
international student scholarships must be received by April 1.  Applications
for the Integrated Marine Conservation Program will be accepted until the
program is full.
