Twenty-one UCT undergraduate science students took part in the Department of Zoology's annual third-year freshwater ecology field camp at Betty's Bay in July.

This camp is a prerequisite for the BIO3003S (Inland Aquatic Ecosystems) course that trains students in the fields of freshwater ecology, as well as in issues related to management of freshwater resources globally and in Southern Africa.

Students and staff on this year's camp were treated to a talk on freshwater conservation issues by Emeritus Professor Bryan Davies, who, with Professor Jenny Day, director of the Freshwater Research Unit (FRU) in zoology, established this "very successful" course almost 13 years ago.
