The wealth in the Indian Ocean drove the first Dutch visitors to accidentally sail to WA's shores, in their pursuit of a faster route to reach the Spice Islands. Four centuries later, its turquoise blue waters offer a sea of opportunities just within our reach. There is still a lot we don't know about the Indian Ocean, which is arguably the least explored of the world's oceans. But we do know that it - like many other oceans around the world - is under stress from overfishing, pollution, climate change and sea level rise.

    I'd say give this course a body swerve for two reasons. The Grading is annoying. You get three tries at the quizzes, but the first is worth 100%, second 90%, and third 80%. There is no point doing the quiz twice or even three times. That wouldn't be so...
