Biology Fieldwork – Plastic Oceans and Coastal Fieldwork
The DQSE Biology syllabus indicates the use of diverse fieldworks during the scholastic year. The idea of introducing a coastal fieldwork arose from the need to expose Biology students to the theory and practice of coastal and marine ecosystems.
In 2014, the organisation ‘Plastic Oceans’ participated in sea plastic cleaning events organised by local NGOs. This interaction has further encouraged the Biology section, DQSE, to promote these activities by the production of a coastal fieldwork booklet which makes students aware of the coastal biological diversity and the human impact on this environment.
