Undergraduates from the University of Exeter Cornwall Campus have kindly donated part of their degree work to Falmouth Aquarium as an educational resource.

The bioscience students have produced visual marine themed posters as part of their degree module – Exploitation of the Sea. The posters have all been assessed and will now be exhibited in the aquarium’s open space and education areas.

Dr Matthew Witt, Lecturer in Natural Environment from the Environment and Sustainability Institute at the Cornwall Campus, explained: “Students have produced posters on the topics of ecotourism, fisheries, marine renewable energy and hydrocarbon extraction as part of their studies. We are thrilled that they are going to be reused by the aquarium, and that the general public will be able to see the excellent work of our students.”

Johanna Naradzay, Director of Falmouth Aquarium, added: “Our aim is to educate our visitors on the various challenges facing our marine environment both now and in the future. These posters are a great resource and will add to our interactive displays.”

The ESI is working with businesses and enterprises across all sectors of the economy in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and beyond to translate research and expertise into innovative business practices, products and services in order to respond to the challenges of environmental change. It has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme (£22.9M) and the South West Regional Development Agency (£6.6M), with significant support from the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
