Greetings, please feel free to distribute this announcement to lists,
students, and colleagues.

*Tropical Marine and Coastal Ecology field program "shorty"; July 2011*
We have a few spots left open in the one week "shorty" Tropical Marine and
Coastal Ecology program being taught by Dr, Heidi Pearson (Stony Brook
University) and Mithriel MacKay (Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center)
in Puerto Rico.

This intensive program includes tide pool, near shore coral reef, and
coastal ecology field work during the day (hiking, snorkeling, marine
protected areas). Evenings are formatted into round table discussions
incorporating connectivity, policy, conservation, and management issues.

The June 15, 2011 deadline is approaching. Spots are secured with full
payment.  There are no prerequisites for this course, although applications
are accepted for adults over 18 years of age. MCERC is providing
documentation of curriculum for students wishing to apply for hours through
their own universities. We have accepted applicants earning as many as 4
credit hours of independent study with their advisers.

The cost is very low at $900.00/person (includes program fees, room and
board at the base station, and travel to all field sites) to assist tight
budgets. Transportation to Ponce, Puerto Rico is not included. For more
information you can go to the MCERC website or contact Mithriel.
