Intertidal Marine Biology

Recommended for Grade 11
Students will have the opportunity to study live specimens from four of British Columbia’s major marine invertebrate phyla and explore the ecology of local seashore animals in our Wet Lab, our behind-the-scenes classroom.

This unique hands-on program helps facilitate a new appreciation for local seashore life by introducing students to the characteristics that distinguishes local marine animals and the conservation issues affecting them. It also encourages students to consider current stewardship opportunities from a perspective often unmatched by the average school classroom.
