Heading into the mudflats

Today was one of the days that I look forward to every year – Mudflat Monday! Two of the three classes braved the challenging ecosystem that is the mudflats today (the third class went last Thursday, so actually they were the first class!).

Slogging through the mudflats

We found clams, worms and crabs…

We really got our gumboots and hands dirty today! This truly is science you can sink your boots into!

    This post made my day! Mudflats are such a wonderful fieldtrip. Our group had found a dead seal, and we brought it back with the hopes of building a skeleton afterwards. Nevertheless, we had left it too long in the nets underwater, and the bones had also started being eaten by micro organisms!
