Long Reef fieldwork

Year 11 Biology students recently attended a field trip to Long Reef as part of their unit of work on Ecosystem Dynamics.

“The students measured both diversity and abundance of organisms present in the sub-littoral, littoral and supra-littoral zones,” said IGS Science Educator and STEAM Innovator Claire Loh.

“They also considered the interactions between organisms in different trophic levels.

“All enjoyed experiencing the practical aspects of ecology and were delighted to witness the bonus spectacle of whales frolicking in the ocean.”
