Video Transcript: Heron Island a perfect environment for studying marine science

Professor Peter Harrison
This is a fantastic teaching opportunity because the students are so engaged and they're so enthusiastic about being out on the reef system.

So it's a natural learning laboratory and that makes it a fantastic opportunity for teaching and engaging directly with students.

Student 1
We arrived on full moon because part of the exercise here is to try and coincide with the coral spawning. The whole beach was lit up and we could see all the turtles that are coming up (to the beach) to nest.

Student 2
Being able to experience what a research station is really like. I (was able to) watch what science life is, really.

Student 3
It's an incredible experience get to work with some great people and great lecturers with great content.  So I really love it.
