Orielton Marine Biology Field Trip
This residential field trip uses shore-based techniques to sample marine habitats. You will learn techniques for the identification of marine organisms, and gain experience in the analysis and presentation of ecological data.
We will be based in Orielton Field Centre, an impressive Georgian mansion situated in over 100 acres of mixed woodland on the Castlemartin Peninsula. This peninsula provides us with access to a wide variety of coastal habitats and boasts a rich history in marine biology research.
Themes of the field course:
- Taxonomy and identification of marine organisms
- Intertidal and shallow sea ecology
- Teamwork and individual responsibility
- Critical thinking
