Marine Mammal Behavior and Conservation Workshop Los Cabos
Marine Mammal Behavior and Conservation Los Cabos—an educational and impactful experience through which participants personally explore the role of ecotourism and how these human activities affect the sustainability of wild marine mammal populations and their ocean environments, as well as meet animals in human care and the professionals dedicated to their wellbeing each and every day.
The workshop includes whale watching, wild sea lion, whale shark encounters and swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery Los Cabos, a safe and fun experience that fosters respect for the animals and an appreciation for the need to conserve them in the wild.
During the weeklong program, participants will learn about marine mammal behavior and science and the importance of environmental education. We will analyze current marine mammal issues, presented from both a local and global perspective. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with expert researchers from diverse backgrounds.
The workshop’s informal setting is designed to stimulate questions and active learning, including field research techniques, collecting and analyzing data, and how to develop critical thinking skills. While anyone who loves marine mammals will find the workshop meaningful and educational, it is specially designed for educators and individuals interested in pursuing a career in marine mammal science.
ABC Animal Training’s ultimate goal is to instill in participants an appreciation for the significance and role of marine mammals in our marine ecosystem, an understanding of marine conservation issues, and, importantly, our roles as leaders in animal management, policy, and care.
