Actividades: Observadores Marinos!

Dear OCR Community and Friends,

Part of the US Navy mitigation agreements to protect marine mammals and turtles involves having their crews informed through their Marine Species Awareness Training program. This involves watching a two part video.

The first part is required of all Commanding Officers, Executive Officers, Observation Officers and Junior Observation Officers, Maritime Patrol Officers, Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) and helicopter mine crews. The second part (focused on species identification) is required of all “Watchstanders.”

You too can become MSAT certified by watching this video:

Thanks to Jim Cummings of Acoustic Ecology for sending this in. His website has all manner of news and information on ocean noise issues. It can be found here: http://aeinews.org/
