Marine megafauna monitoring courses

Share:

Empowering the next generations is key to creating decision-makers who care for the sea. To date, we have trained over 460 primary, high-school and university students in 1-4-day hands-on field courses. The training included topics on fisheries-independent megafauna monitoring techniques for sharks, rays, and turtles. The longer field courses included longline preparation, deployment, animal handling, in-water transects, abundance estimation work, size estimation, baited remote underwater video set-up and deployment, data collection, and basic analytical techniques. Several of the students have gone on to work in the marine field.
