Day 6 and 7

The Last day and the day after where memorable. We started off the last day in Virgin Gorda by eating breakfast at the teachers cabin.

Then we head back to...

Our great breakfast consisted of sausage, eggs, and potatoes. Breakfast was followed by presentations about the class and our dives from Casey, a dive...

Articles

Today I learned about different aspects of marine life from the articles presented. The first article was about ecotourism, and from it I learned that ecotourism, while it raises awareness about wild life, it can also have harmful impacts. Ecotourism can lead to killing of species and deforestation, which can leave unrepairable scars on a habitat. The next article...

Sting Ray

Sting Rays are grey. They are usually buried in sand to catch prey and hide from predators. To hunt, they use an electrical sensor around its mouth that sense protein. Its mouth is located on its chest, eyes on side. It also has a barbed tail that can have venom in it, that is used to kill prey.

I have learned that wordpress is used for marine biology.
