Durlston's Guillemots - Lesson Pack
Description: This lesson unit looks at the Guillemot colony at Durlston Country Park. Using the provided resources pupils are encouraged to look at how Guillemots are adapted for their lifestyle, the advantages and disadvantages of living on a cliff and how their life cycle is adapted to ensure breeding success. As an extension more able pupils should be encouraged to use this information to suggest threats to the Guillemots and conservation methods to ensure the survival of the colony. The unit should take between one and two lessons (approximately two hours).
