GBR Biology led guided snorkelling
Accessibility to snorkelling from Reef Magic’s Pontoon is terrific for students of all ages. They can make use of the 15 metre long snorkel platform to gear up and prepare themselves for their guided snorkel. During this activity students will be working with a designated Marine Biologist or Cultural Guides for a personalised and private tour.
Students will explore the lagoon area on Moore Reef, meeting the iconic Maori Wrasse that frequents the pontoon and listen to the guides interpretation and stories of the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef and its’ inhabitants. Providing the most up to date information and helping to subdue misconceptions associate with this ecosystem. Your Marine Biologist can discuss biological and ecological process of the Great Barrier Reef and information on the management of the reef system and the threats it faces. Talk to our guides about what your students are learning in the classroom and allow us to customise the conversation to meet your students needs.
On the tour, students can engage in citizen science on the reef. Collecting real-world monitoring data, including the Eye on the Reef program with the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority [GBRMPA] and submitting images through the sightings network. Students can learn the importance of indicator species, how the reef is monitored and be able to submit their findings into the GBRMPA’s database.
