Four Seasons Apprenticeship Program
Our revised and expanded marine biology classes are proving popular with this year’s Four Seasons apprentices. We hold a 2-hour class each Saturday, with the first semester divided into 10 modules (invertebrates, fish, Cetaceans and sea turtles). Recent classes have covered bony fish, cartilaginous fish and a practical fish dissection lesson.
Introducing some of our apprentices: Zidhan, Mode, Fauzan, Ziyan, Irekey and Yaniu. As marine biology students, they will cover 20 modules ranging from marine mega fauna to invertebrates, to understanding the workings of the ocean through ecosystem and biology modules.
The programme grants hands on practical experience, shadowing the marine biologists of the MDC in the coral propagation programme, turtle rehabilitation, and fish lab, with academic sessions held every week to cover the theory. This gives a rare insight to the inner workings of a renowned marine biology centre, which will enable them to continue protecting and repairing the worlds biggest and most valuable resource.
