Photo Brief: Sharks in Bimini SD HC

Photo by Laura E. Rock

Trista Burch, a senior studying Marine Science and Biology, swims with sharks during the MBF-514 Tropical Marine Biology trip in Bimini Bay, Bahamas. “I really enjoyed how hands-on the class was. We would learn about the different organisms and ecosystems and then go visit the specific ecosystem that same day. I also loved that we got to go snorkeling everyday, sometimes multiple times per day. It was really awesome to be able to snorkel with sharks in their natural habitat,” Burch said. The program was 10 days and there were 16 students who studied at the Bimini Biological Field Station (BBFS) on South Bimini in the Bahamas. BBFS is owned by shark biologist Dr. Samuel H. Gruber and offers internships for students and other research opportunities.

  1. Awesome photo of a brave young woman! What a great opportunity for someone who is studying marine science and biology to be involved in such a research project. With a small class and an intensive time frame, no wonder they had such hands on experiences. Would be great if all labs could be so exciting for students.
