special of the month: SSI specialty “Marine Mammal Ecology”
Do you have a passion for saving the ocean and the sea creatures that call it home? Are you fascinated by the thought of diving with whales? Want to learn more about marine mammal ecology, biology and conservation? SSI’s Marine Mammal Ecology programme introduces you to the wonders of these amazing creatures. Immerse yourself in the world of whales, dolphins and seals and explore this amazingly diverse group of marine animals.
In this fun and easy-to-understand programme, you’ll learn what makes marine mammals different from land mammals, discover where they live, explore their physiology and learn how to identify different species. You’ll also learn about marine mammal conservation – a great way to help save the ocean.
After completing the programme, you will receive SSI Marine Mammal Ecology Specialty certification.
You can complete the course entirely from home. You don’t need to be at the base at any time. Once you have completed the online course, we will issue the certification for you.
This specialty can be a step towards your next certification card. For example, for your Advanced Open Water Diver, which you get automatically and for free if you have completed any four specialties and 25 dives after the OWD.
