永利皇宫登录网址, we’re proud to have earned an outstanding reputation for marine and environmental science. We were the first university in Australia to offer an undergraduate degree in Environmental 科学 and the first in Western Australia 提供海洋科学.
In this short intensive program, you’ll cover three main areas:
- The diversity and physical processes of Western Australia’s marine habitats
- A focus on coral reef environments and the biodiversity of reef organisms
- Biological processes, with a focus on coral reef ecosystems
The course will suit you if you’re an undergraduate student and have already completed at least two classes of general biology as background.
As part of this course, you’ll visit the Ningaloo Marine Park. 位于珀斯以北1100公里处, the marine park runs almost 300km along the coast of the Cape Range National Park:
南回归线以北的位于南回归线以北的, the waters are warm for most of the year and the beaches, 像大多数西澳人一样, 是白色的, 不受打扰，干净漂亮.
珊瑚湾位于宁格鲁海岸公园的中央, 很容易到达珊瑚礁, 在岸边形成了天然的泻湖.
You can snorkel, scuba dive or explore the reef by tour.
You’ll have the chance to explore more than 200 species of hard corals, 500种鱼类, 650种软体动物, 还有海龟和蝠鲼.
The area is also a part of the migration route of the famous Whale Sharks.
Ningaloo is as spectacular as the Great Barrier Reef, but is much more accessible. The iconic status of Ningaloo Reef was recognised internationally when it was added to the World Heritage Register in 2011.
These details are subject to change but you can expect:
Theory classes (lectures and tutorials) will be presented at the 珀斯的校园 before the field camp. 在我们返回珀斯的时候, you will have time to complete field reports and presentations, 为你的期末评估做准备.
You’ll start with a series of lectures and educational videos to get a physical and biogeographical background to WA coral reefs, an introduction to WA reef biodiversity and details of key biological and ecological processes of coral reefs.
On the field trip, you’ll work as part of a group on a choice of topics. You will need to complete two projects over a period of three days each. To expand your Ningaloo Reef experience, you’ll join a wildlife interaction cruise complete with 礁石上的浮潜活动.
你也有闲暇时间, where you can enjoy a range of tourism activities in Coral Bay.
You will also attend non-assessed lectures on data analysis and the Ningaloo Marine Park and other special lectures. Your laboratory classes and tutorials will address aspects of reef ecology and processes, including a mixture of biodiversity and techniques-based 练习.
你将通过一系列的方法进行评估, including a theory exam at Murdoch University and tutorial participation, while your fieldwork will be assessed by a report and group presentations after the field camp.
- fully serviced apartment on campus at Murdoch University Student Village while in 珀斯
- snorkelling trip and snorkelling equipment (if required).
