Good Afternoon Everyone,
It seems that I made an error on this email....the date is wrong.
Please note the cutoff date is March 31, 2011. Will you please forward
to any list serves that might be able to send it out for us. I will
appreciate it. deb
I am the administrator for the Duke Center for Marine Conservation at
the Duke University Marine Lab. Our purpose is to offer educational,
research and collaborative opportunities for persons or organizations in
the field of marine conservation.
Each year, the Duke University Marine Laboratory/Duke Center for Marine
Conservation offers an exciting opportunity for international students.
Duke's Integrated Marine Conservation Program teaches the principles
necessary to 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. This program is a tremendous opportunity for
students at any level to think about conservation biology and policy in
an environment full of students and faculty grappling with the same
issues. The core class - BIO 109/ENV209 Conservation Biology and Policy
- involves field trips, discussion groups, role play, lecture and a
final project that focuses on the integration of science and policy.
Students will leave the class with an appreciation of the policy
process, as well as knowledge in the fundamentals of marine conservation.
Please see the announcement below I am requesting you to post/have
posted to your list serve. This is a wonderful opportunity. I do hope
you will help me get the word out. Time is short.....our final
application date is March 31, 2011. I am sorry for the short notice, but
will appreciate any and all efforts on our behalf.
In anticipation of a positive response, I thank you.
