Ecology Fieldwork Study at Fota

Ninety one sixth year Biology students travelled to Fota Wildlife Park on Thursday 10th of October to carryout their ecology fieldwork study. It started out as a miserable day but thankfully dried up for the fieldwork aspect during the afternoon. Students were able to study a woodland and grassland habit. They carried out a variety of investigations measuring many environmental factors and using loads of new equipment. They also got some time to explore the park and see some of the animals. It was enjoyed by both students and teachers who attended.
