OERS-F500 – CSI Marine mammals (May 9-13, 2022)
Following on the heels of a series of enormously successful courses in the summers of 2007-2019.
OERS will be offering its eighth dissection/autopsy experience which will be 5 days in length and consist of a detailed hands on anatomical exploration of a marine mammal.
For the summer 2022 (May 9-13), it is a young adult pinniped (grey seal). Participants will be fully involved in the necropsy and dissection, getting a first-hand look at the wonders of pinniped adaptations.
As well you will learn the state of its health and general condition.
This knowledge will assist us in better understanding these amazing creatures and how our environment is impacting on them. Please be aware that if the participant so chooses, this is hands on and will be messy.
All course materials provided, space is limited to ensure hands on experience for all participants who wish it. Cost $2500. Submitting the registration form with the non-refundable deposit of $500 ensures your space on this very popular and unusual experience.
Registrations are now open, apply immediately if you really wish to be a part of this unique experience!
NOTE: If also enrolling in PSL378 (UofT) at the same time you get a discounted price of $2400 with confirmation of enrollment. Also note course is always subject to availability of specimen. For 2022 this has been confirmed.
