Special to the Tribune

Glassford Hill Middle School sent 37 eighth-grade students to Catalina Island to study marine biology at the Catalina Island Marine Institute.

Students learned about a variety of ecosystems to better understand endangered species and how humans impact the environment.

Upon completion of the program, students were able to compare the symbiotic and competitive relationships of organisms within oceanic, desert and riparian ecosystems.

They also analyzed the relationships among organisms and their environment and learned basic snorkeling skills to help them study the ocean environment.

Scientists introduced students to the classification, anatomy, behavior and adaptive features of fish and various marine mammals.

Students received all the information necessary to create an ecosystem conservation scrapbook, including pictures of the ecosystems, identified dangers, human impact, endangered species and current and suggested conservation methods to protect the ecosystems.
