Underwater Naturalist

"What do you call that red striped, long whiskered, black spotted thingymabob?" Sound familiar?

The ability to recognise and identify various aquatic life in your local area is important not just for personal satisfaction, but also to tell your friends what it is!

The course includes:

  • The planning, organisation, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of diving in different aquatic environments
  • A basic overview of major aquatic life groupings (kingdoms and phyla). Factual information that dispels myths of potentially dangerous aquatic life
  • An overview of basic aquatic life interactions and associations. Responsible human interactions with aquatic life

The undersea environment varies greatly from area to area but no more so than in it's inhabitants.
