Biologist's Log: June 28, 2013

After a morning discussion/activity on plankton, algal blooms and water quality, students prepped for a dive at a unique site called Catacombs (continued…)

Catacombs is located on Great Camanoe Island. After the dive we headed to Trellis Bay to meet back up with Aragorn, the farmer we met earlier in the week. He’s also an excellent artist so he was kind enough to show us around studio and introduce us to the artists who work with him. We saw demonstrations on how he builds his metal sculptures and how his colleagues create the clay pottery they sell in the gallery. Afterwards, we headed to Marina Cay and were introduced to the next dive specialty course, called Marine Heritage Awareness. The lecture helped prep them for the three wreck dives they will be doing over the next few days. The students were thrilled to find out that they would be doing some wreck dives. To end the day, our group joined up with the main program students for our two-weeker presentations. Then it was back to the boat for our evening lecture and video, continuing their marine heritage specialty course. Looking forward to the wreck dive tomorrow!
