Bioasis Scientific is go for launch!
Today, a group of environmental science students from Peter Symonds College are making the trek into The Bioasis. Their mission? Reach Holbe Basecamp to undertake the very first Bioasis Scientific mission - a new addition to our school residential and educational trips programme.
Based on the standard Bioasis 5 mission, but with added biodiversity bells on, Bioasis Scientific takes a deep dive into all things conservation, land management, environmental protection and nature reconnection.
Over the course of 5 days, off-grid in the wildflower meadows, ancient woodland and salt marshes of The Bioasis, the group will get up close and personal with a range of important topics and skills, including:
Wildlife cameras and small mammal traps
Invasive species removal
Land and estate management
Estuary/ocean plastic clean up, working with a local NGO
River and estuary water sampling
Tree and Wildflower ID
Citizen Science surveys and biodiversity data collection
We have a fantastic team of specialist leaders working on this trip, with a diverse range of outdoor education and specialist ecology backgrounds.
If you're interested in arranging a biology field trip, or environmental science hands-on practical residential, then do get in touch. You can read more about our Bioasis Scientific mission here
