Our 2018 JMB program was 1.5 jam-packed days of hands-on and experiential learning about marine biology and what it’s like to be a marine biologist. We assisted female marine biologists with their conservation research at a local weir at low tide during the day and overnight, and learned to camp at a local Provincial Park!
This program took place in July 2018 with middle and high-school aged girls in on Bon Portage Island off of Barrington. We spent 4 days and 3 nights on the Island assisting female biologists with their Leach’s storm petrel research and learning about wildlife conservation.
Are you the leader/administrator/teacher of a group of deserving and awesome girls that you think would love an experience like this? Contact us, and follow our social media to keep up-to-date about program offerings!
