06/21-23 An Immersive Marine Biology Experience
Explore marine biodiversity in the field, offshore on a research vessel, and up close in the lab at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology. We’ll see benthic and planktonic marine organisms, pelagic and shore birds, and marine mammals, using scientific tools to get to know them better. We’ll also learn about ecological and oceanographic processes influencing the form, function, and survival of marine species, and discuss uses of marine resources by local communities, coastal tribes, and wildlife.
Moderate (Up to 1 mile of hiking per day; Students will need to be mobile on wet, slippery, seaweed-covered rocks, on steep inclines, and aboard a moving vessel at sea)
