School camping and excursions– Moreton Experience

Beachcombing is best on the ocean beach. We camp on the ocean beach and all the bus tours travel along the ocean beach, so students have the best chance to find treasure!

A salp -
These pelagic tunicates are often barrel shaped and at least partly hollow. They belong to the chordate phylum, the same as vertebrates. The salp moves by contracting its main body walls and pumping out water. Salps can occur individually or in strings. Some species form huge mats or large hollow bodies many meters long which almost replicate their individual body shape. Salps feed on plankton. They reproduce by budding off clones as a direct response to plankton blooms. Often after plankton blooms fade salps wash up on beaches.
