Welcome to the website of the newly established California Student Chapter of the Society for Marine Mammalogy. The primary goal of this chapter is to connect graduate students studying marine mammals in California and surrounding areas.  We also hope this chapter will be an excellent resource for undergraduates looking to learn more about graduate student research and gain experience. We will be having our first annual conference in 2013, which will be an opportunity for students to present their research in an informal setting, and meet and network with fellow students.

This chapter is currently based out of the University of California Santa Cruz and is sponsored by Dr. Daniel Costa. Interested in becoming a member? Check out our membership page for more information. We also have a Facebook group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/californiastudentchapter/)
