Day 1: Ho’omaka- To begin

Aloha!

403 is back again this summer and all the students arrived on Coconut Island this morning ready to go. It’s going to be a month packed full of coral surveys, water analysis, benthic studies and more! In the classroom we have a great line up of guest speakers coming to talk to us about all the interesting work that is being done here on island.  Dr. Hunter, Dr. Bahr and all the TA’s have been getting ready for months to be prepared for this jam packed, high intensity, sun-burned, jellyfish stung, lots-of-fun field course.

Becca giving an equipment overview for all the different tools we'll use to gather our data. We're in the classroom this morning but we'll be in the water ASAP!

We are going to let the students take over the blog after today. They’ll log all their work, personal stories, lessons learned and most importantly, the science they are learning in the field. All of the instructors are really looking forward to exploring the Bay together and teaching the next generation of marine biologists. Follow us to hear all of our adventures that await us this month!

Mahalo,

Biology 403.
