Populations, Conservation and Management Issues of Marine Mammals


Course description

This course will delve into the issues associated with marine mammals. Population levels, conservation, captivity, ship strikes, acoustic pollution and protection of endangered species are all ongoing concerns for mammals on the BC Coast. We will discuss the intricacies of their survival, looking at how interactions with humans have changed over time and the threats that anthropogenic activities now pose, including underwater ambient noise and pollutants. The course will include everything from historic whaling records to cutting-edge ecological research. Lectures will use slides, bones, photographs, video and other visual aids to enhance material presented.

Instructor: Rianna Burnham, BSc, MSc, is an environmental scientist specializing in marine ecosystems and mammal ecology.

Note: Although this is a stand-alone course, it will draw on some biological and ecological material presented in Evolution, Biology and Ecology of Marine Mammals.
