Grade 11 & 12 Marine BioBasics
How can air-breathing reptiles, birds, and mammals swim, eat and dive to depths in the ocean without getting the bends (Diving Physiology)? How are nudibranchs and cephalopods able to survive without a shell? This course introduces you to all the animal groups, from sponges (Porifera) to the more complex marine vertebrates (Chordata) looking at how they deal with life processes, i.e. respiration, excretion, movement, and reproduction.
The course is Aquarium-based with lots of hands-on activities, including dissections, live invertebrates and a tour of our turtle rehab facility and seal platform.
Are you interested in studying marine biology? Then this course is for you as we introduce you to biological and scientific terms which will supplement your studies.
