Marine Biology Field Experience (ongoing)

CMI Marine Biology Field Experience (runs throughout August)

Marine mammals can be found in all oceans and have adapted to live in a wide variety of habitats from the warmest to the coldest oceans and from the shallowest to the most extreme depths. This 8 day experience is part of OERS's ongoing research program at its Comeauville Marine Institute (CMI) that investigates issues related to the ecology and conservation of various marine species in the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia. The Bay is a large body of water that is rich in marine life and of huge economical importance to the local communities. Worldwide future climate change events may increase the amount of contaminants entering the marine environment which could affect the health of humans who have a high dependence on the numerous marine species that they harvest and consume. With this unique opportunity, you will experience current and exciting in the field research by assisting biologists studying the ecology and conservation of various marine mammal species. This experience will provide participants the opportunity to work with and assist an OERS biologist who is studying the ecology and conservation of various marine animal species and the ongoing threats to their environment and survival. (ie. human impacts, climate change, and other environmental threats). More details to come. (posted October 23, 2015)
