Young scientists observe collection of starfish

The dive team brought up a collection of starfish for the Darwin200 young scientists to study. We released them all after studying them exactly where we found them, but the opportunity allowed the young scientists to understand echinoderms morphology up close and personal!

The young scientists were all amazed to see the hundreds of “tube feet” which the starfish use to move!
