Research in Your Classroom

If your class is joining us for a tour during a field trip, your students will learn about the Marine Mammal Physiology Project at Long Marine Lab. This project is a living classroom where students, scientists, and animals work together to solve some of the great underwater mysteries of marine mammals. Prepare students for their tour and integrate these adventures into your classroom prior to your field trip. Learn how scientists work cooperatively with resident dolphins, Puka and Primo, and other marine animals that your students will see, directly translating their work into the preservation of marine ecosystems. It’s a great resource to use with your students before or after their field trip. For more information, visit www.mmpp.ucsc.edu.

Teachers can integrate marine science into their curriculum through the Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP) Program. Scientists from around the world attach satellite tags to over 20 different species in the Pacific Ocean including white sharks, leatherback turtles, and elephant seals. Students can follow the movements of these animals in real time. For more information, visit TOPP.org.
