Expedition blogs and news from the Shallow Marine Surveys Group

Back to school!

This morning Drs Judith Brown and Wetjens Dimmlich woke early to go back to school. They travelled up the hill to Two Boats school to show the children there a selection of images from Shallow Marine Survey Group's work in both the Falkland Islands and the current Ascension expedition.

Jude spoke to the entire school who were gathered in the gym and managed to maintain the interest of all ages during her talk. She showed images of different species of animals found in the cold Falkland waters and the tropical Ascension waters and challenged her audience to pick which came from where.


She also described our unsuccessful attempts so far to entice an unidentified shrimp from his hole and received some very useful tips for the audience on how to entice the creature from its burrow. During the drive back to the Conservation offices we had some discussion about finding a source on the island for parsley!
