Dolphins. Otters. Whales. Seals. Manatees. Polar bears. In this class, we will explore the large variety of marine mammals, the similarities and differences between them, and the specific anatomical structures that allow them to successfully live in the ocean. If time permits, the class will explore the evolutionary divergence from fish and how mammalian species returned to the water.

This class will take place both synchronously and asynchronously, using Google Classroom and Zoom to engage the students in real time and to provide direct instruction. Students may be divided into break-out sessions or asked to complete individual tasks. The instructor will be online monitoring and directly available for guidance for the entirety of class time.
