How in 1200 words (which I initially thought was 2200, cue one hell of a word cut-down!) can you explain an entire research proposal, including background, hypothesis and actual plan of action?! I can’t help but feel I sound like a five year old reeling off seal facts. And hey, why doesn’t anyone just publish fun animal facts? I need to reference basic seal biology but can I find it anywhere in a peer reviewed journal unless you want to get crazy technical? No, no I can’t. Thank you IUCN for being the one website I can still use as a credible source!
