opportunity from July 9 to August 10, 2012. Duke's Integrated Marine
Conservation Program focuses on principles necessary for the conservation and
preservation of coastal and ocean environments during an intensive 5-week
summer session. The focus is on interdisciplinary problem solving using
biophysical and social science to address real world environmental problems.
This program is a tremendous opportunity for students and professionals at any
level to think about conservation biology and policy in an environment full of
students, faculty and practicioners grappling with the same issues. The core
class (BIO 109/ENV 209 Conservation Biology and Policy) involves field trips,
discussion groups and lectures and visits with Distinguished Conservation
Scholars each week. Students will leave the class with an appreciation of the
policy process, as well as with grounding in the fundamentals of marine

for both BIO 109/ENV 209 Conservation Biology and Policy plus one specialized
elective course. Electives (subject to availability) include: Biology and
Conservation of Sea Turtles, Marine Mammals, Marine Ecology and Marine
The Global Fellowship application deadline for summer, 2012, is February 15,
The Global Fellowships are available to any international applicant with a good
working knowledge of English who has an interest in marine conservation biology
and policy, ideally with the intent to apply this interest to the practice of
coastal and marine conservation. The course does not have specific prerequisites,
but Global Fellows have a BA or BS degree in hand, are enrolled in such
programs, or have some professional experience.
