Marine course for diving enthusiasts

Calling all divers and undersea enthusiasts: uShaka Sea World's Education Centre will be hosting its popular annual Basic Marine Ecology Course from 5 September this year.

The part-time course comprises five two-and-a-half hour modules, and takes place once a week over five weeks from 6pm to 8.30pm.

Content includes slide presentations, lectures, hands-on learning and identification, and detailed course notes.

Topics to be covered in the modules include oceanography, biodiversity, invertebrate and vertebrate classification, and identification of fish families.

The course culminates in a fascinating night tour of the aquarium to showcase the nocturnal activities of uShaka Sea World’s many species.

This course was a sell-out in 2012, so book early by calling Eltina Stenhouse on 083 270 1029 or 031 201 5387, or email her at eltinastenhouse@mweb.co.za.
