Y12 Biology sampling trip
Students went to the Hunstanton Sea Life Centre where they were given a talk on marine animal adaptations and their habitats. They were allowed to touch the animals and observe them close up. The talk also covered conservation projects and issues both locally and globally.
Afterwards they learned some beach sampling techniques. Later they were driven to the Sandringham Estate for forestry management and sampling techniques, including the ethics of tree logging and land clearance.
