Sardinian Marine biology - Educational excursions
Marine Biology, educational excursion
The Playa Sardinia association proposes a new educational activity in marine biology with a collaboration of a Marine Biologist.
You will discover the beauty and uniqueness of our seas in snorkeling.
This activity is optimal for children, adults and families.
Short description of the experience:
The experience is divided in 2 steps:
• Discovering the marine ecosystem in this descriptive phase, it will be show a short presentation of the sea environment, the algae and the classification of the main species that we would see under water. The marine plant Posidonia oceanica, its ecological importance in Mediterranean marine ecosystem. The animal assemblages: we will classify the animals distinguishing them in benthic organisms (they are linked to the bottom) and nectonic organisms (they swim in the water column as some fish species and cetaceans). This part will last about 30 minutes.
• After this presentation we will go to the discover to the marine species in snorkeling we will try to recognize the species and know the sea with a new consciousness. This part will last about 2 hours.
With these information we can understand the human impact and pollution on the species thus increasing the respect of the marine environment.
There are two types of sea excursion, one near the base along the rocky shore between Valledoria and Castelsardo, and one farther near Isola Rossa and Tinnari.
The transfers to the snorkeling places will be done with a specific boat and the marine biologist.
The excursions take place in the morning by a request from the users (reservation by calling).
