The Our Water Our World Speaker Series is an extension of the educational programming offered by the Oceans Learning Partnership in collaboration with Memorial University, Parks Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.



The BGSA  have been teaming up with the Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium to provide graduates an opportunity to get experience in public education and science communication.

Come out to the Marine Institute on Tuesday Nights to check out the lecture series.


Jayden Druggett

Seven-year-old Jayden Druggett has something in common with his favourite animal, the moon snail. Both need a little extra coaxing to come out of their shells.

And even though his mother, Jenny Purcell, says he is completely obsessed with snails, one thing she never, ever thought he would be able to do was hold one.

Memorial University will help cultivate the next generation of innovators in Newfoundland and Labrador thanks to a $2.85-million investment from the Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd. (HMDC).
