Introduction to Marine Biology

As part of the on-going effort of our foundation to inform the widest possible audience about the ocean, it is a pleasure to offer an Introduction to Marine Biology from 22 to 30 July 2014, organized in cooperation with the Advanced Teacher Training Institute, with the support of Conservation International Suriname and the financing of Staatsolie Maatschappij Suriname N.V. and the Small Grants Programme of the Global Environment Facility.

The lectures will be held for teachers in training of the Advanced Teacher Training Institute during the day and evening and special lectures will be provided in the building of Conservation International Suriname in the evenings for all other interested parties, and for students who want to catch up. The lecture series will be given by Lenin Oviedo E. Correa, a Venezuelan Marine Biologist, who is currently working in Costa Rica for the Earthwatch Institute, where he is Principal Scientific Advisor and Research Associate with the Center for Cetacean Research of Costa Rica. Lenin has a Bachelor's degree in Oceanography from the La Salle Natural Science Foundation in Venezuela, and a Master's degree in Marine and Coastal Sciences of the Universidad Nacional of Costa Rica.

Fieldwork will also be conducted with a limited group of students and other interested persons (at most 20 persons).

The course will be open to anyone. Please find below the draft programme for the lecture series. Also find below a link to the form where you can register:

To our regret we have to close the registration for this course today, the 22nd of July.
