Information|Registration: Huntsman Application
Located at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, the Huntsman is perfectly positioned to access one of the worlds most productive ecosystems. The daily rise and fall of the huge tides stirs up nutrients that provide food for microscopic plants, which in turn feed small animals. This abundance of zooplankton and fish attracts whales, seals, porpoises and seabirds from all over the North Atlantic. Students will have a chance to see them first hand on the course boat trips. Land time will we spent studying characteristics, adaptations, migrations and more.
Participants will learn about:
* marine mammal and seabird diversity
* their adaptations to the marine environment
* migration patterns
* whale catalogues that identify individual animals and more
Fee includes: four night dormitory accommodation, all meals from Monday supper to Friday breakfast, boat and lab fees, aquarium admissions and taxes. You just need to find your way to St. Andrews , NB.
