You will visit whale feeding grounds, seal haul-outs, seabird colonies, and the rocky intertidal coastline. Gain firsthand experience in data collection and research with whale and seabird experts at offshore island research stations. Explore writing and literature with college professors while visiting the places you are reading about and honing your own writing skills.
