Today a marine biologist named Luana from CuriOcean came to visit us and deliver a Marine Mammals Workshop.
CuriOcean aims to raise awareness on marine conservation issues and share the information with schools. Luana Jungmann is a Marine Conservationist and Environmental Educator, who has travelled the world to discover different cultures and dealt with a variety of marine conservation topics.
The Marine Mammals workshop gave an overview on Irish marine mammals, their importance, threats and current research. It allowed the students to gain an insight into a marine mammals researcher's typical day, about marine mammals, the acoustics behinds dolphins communication, photo-identification and how to response to a stranding.
It was a very informative workshop and great fun as the children engaged in many activities.
