Join us for BMSC Live!
Our Education Team will be providing online virtual field trips (for free) over the next few months. Topics will include marine invertebrates, plankton, fish, a trip on the MV Alta, and more.
Supported in part by NSERC PromoScience:
Partnering with Ocean Networks Canada
It’s that time of year again! Ocean Networks Canada team will be joining the BMSC crew to conduct maintenance on the cabled observatory at Folger Passage, which delivers real-time data for scientific research. Our Foreshore Crew and Marine Science Educators will be sharing their experiences.
Mud monsters from the deeps!
Join us on an Alta Adventure as we dredge from the deepest part of Barkley Sound searching for curious organisms that live in the muddy depths!
Invertebrates expert, Dr. Marjorie Wonham, will be joining us remotely to help identify these unique and rarely seen organisms!
Life between the tides
This week, #BMSCLive goes to Eagle Bay in search of new creatures! Join us to discover which sneaky animals are hiding under the rocks, beneath the seagrass, or in plain sight, as they wait for the tide to turn.
Stuck on you! What’s living under the docks?
Join us for a look at subtidal communities. This week, we explore what has settled onto the anchors and lines under our docks. We will take a fish’s eye view by sending a camera under water to observe marine life in its natural habitat.
Alta adventure on the high seas, Part II!
The BMSC dive team wishes they could take all of you underwater with them but we have the next best thing… Presenting Alta Adventure: Part 2!!!! Using a dredge, we’ll be able to bring all of the neat subtidal species up to the surface so we can show them off through a livestream. Join us to discover lots of unique marine species alongside our marine science educators! Last dredge we focused on the more common organisms; this show will highlight and explore rare species and biodiversity.
If you enjoyed our #BMSClive:Plankton show, you’re going to love Plankton Part II – Peculiar Plankton!
While the first show covered the basics of plankton and our more common suspects, this show will uncover the more unusual and rare species!
While BMSC remains operational with essential staff, we are exploring opportunities to provide new spring/summer course additions and BMSC Live experiences, offered via online teaching and learning, to provide more students with the opportunity to continue progressing through their programs during these times.
