With significant amounts of time spent on our research vessel and undertaking surveys from the shore, this course focuses on developing the practical skills needed to undertake marine mammal and marine bird surveys. Time in the field and back in the laboratory will also be spent developing identification skills.

Jack Lucas is a knowledgeable marine biologist having conducted marine mammal research in four countries, and with a degree in the subject. He is also a qualified Passive Acoustic Monitoring operator and Marine Mammal Observer. He has a passion for birds and marine orgnanisms, and works on Cumbrae as an FSC tutor for much of the year so knows the local sites well.
