Pacific NW marine invertebrates: unsung heroes and how you can learn about them from marine science centres on Vancouver Island.
In this 60min virtual presentation we will provide a brief overview of marine invertebrates - a group of organisms that often receive poor public opinion despite the fact that they are major contributors to global biodiversity and ecosystem function. You will hear from five unique marine science centres located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia about how you can bring marine invertebrates to your classroom (Seaquaria), virtual learning of marine invertebrates (Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre), field trips to the only aquarium dedicated to marine invertebrates of the Salish Sea (Shaw Centre for Salish Sea), how marine invertebrates have impacted BC’s nautical culture and heritage (Maritime Museum), and how you can access data on marine invertebrates from your own desktop (Ocean Networks Canada). This presentation is ideal for students in grades 6-11.
