Sanibel Sea School Summer Camp – Teens
A Week in the Field
So, you want to be a biologist, huh? You know it’s not all it’s dreamt up to be – getting dirty, doing hot and sweaty fieldwork, and finding ways to catch creatures… wait, that IS fun! Join Sanibel Sea School this week to learn what it takes to be a biologist. From digging in the mud in a mangrove forest to surveying shorebirds on the coast to combing the early morning beaches in search of sea turtle nests or water sampling and oyster measuring – we’ll do it all, and so much more! We will work alongside SCCF’s scientists to analyze and gather data, get hands-on experience in field techniques and research methods, and learn how to communicate results to various audiences. Get ready to get your feet wet, hands dirty, and minds blown as we discover what a day in the life of an SCCF biologist is really like.
Ages 13 – 15
