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.
