A Hands on Introduction to Marine Biology
|Scooped by AquaBioTech Group|
Marine Biology Courses in Malta
Aquabiotech will be dispelling myths about marine biology by offering innovative and intensive courses in marine biology this summer, spread over three afternoons. The course will be run on
different dates this summer, between June and August. The courses are ideal for foreign students visiting the islands to learn English, as well as tourists and Maltese. The first two course dates will be dedicated to lectures (eight hours in total) covering subjects such as the features of the Mediterranean, major coastal and marine habitats and species within the basin, as well as human impact on the marine environment and conservation strategies (including Marine Protected Areas). The third afternoon will be dedicated to field experience, with participants opting for either SCUBA diving or snorkelling sessions. Non-divers can opt for a PADI-certified SCUBA introductory course, with full-face underwater communication technology being used to help exchanges between the lecturer and participants. No previous academic or SCUBA diving background and knowledge are expected, and the courses are open to all ages. Lectures will be delivered by marine biologist Dr Alan Deidun, while diving sessions will be led by Watercolours Diving School (Sliema).
