The Fundy Marine Science Institute: The Whale Camp & The School of Fundy
Who We Are
The Fundy Marine Science Institute
The Fundy Marine Science Institute is dedicated to providing marine biology experiential educational programs and facilities for learning about the dynamic marine ecology of the Bay of Fundy as well as the coastal, terrestrial and human ecologies of Grand Manan Island. Our goal is to use hands-on, discovery-oriented marine science activities to increase awareness and understanding of these living systems and by extension the living systems of our oceans and planet.
The Whale Camp
Established in 1984, The Whale Camp's marine scinece program has had an exceptional experiential impact on hundreds of students ages ten to seventeen. The Whale Camp's hands-on programming and vibrantly personal experiences brings students face-to-face to study whales, porpoises, seals, puffins and numerous other marine and avian species in their own natural habitat. These experiences have proven to be both life-affirming and life-changing, igniting and inspiring a passionate curiosity to learn more about our ocean's and planet's life processes.
The School of Fundy & The STEM Marine Science Academy
The School of Fundy and STEM Marine Science Academy are the Educational Services arm of the Fundy Marine Science Institute working with selected K-12 schools, colleges, universities and institutions to provide custom designed educational programming and facilities to meet their specific goals. Three-day to eight week programs are available. With many years experience as a teacher and Director of Curriculum at the Woodlynde School outside Philadelphia PA, our Director Dennis Bowen works closely with school representatives to clarify and accomplish their goals.
