Gulf Detectives: Animals of the Northern Gulf of Mexico
This episode of Gulf Detectives follows three young science detectives as they learn about the animals of the Northern Gulf of Mexico with the help of the scientists at Dauphin Island Sea Lab. The program features a shark research boat trip, a shark dissection, and a visit to Coffee Island to learn about the efforts by The Nature Conservancy to restore the oyster reefs in the area. The gulf detectives also get their hands dirty with marsh mud to discover what creatures live there and what they can tell us about the health of the Gulf’s ecosystem. This Learning Adventure teaches concepts of animal habitats, animal adaptations, food webs, ecosystems, and other aspects of biology and environmental science. Join us!
