UKSA students check on oysters

Following the launch of the Isle of Wight’s first oyster regeneration project in October last year, UKSA has now made it part of the sustainability modules on its education courses, as students check on the oysters, their baskets and measure their growth. This initiative would not have been possible without the generous funding support provided by Cowes Harbour Commission.

Ben Willows, CEO of UKSA said: “The launch of the oyster regeneration project at UKSA was landmark, and it was important to us to be able to incorporate the project within UKSA as much as possible. A great start in making a difference in the marine environment we call home, the project is a step forward for sustainability on the Island and the students having such a local reference while learning about sustainability is fantastic.”
