Have dreams of rescuing stranded dolphins? Have nightmares about alligator attacks? Would you love to go on a beach patrol monitoring and saving sea turtles? Interested in the basics of teaching tricks or designing games for them to play and enrichment activities in their enclosures? 

Marine Animals is for you! From the simple mollusks all the way through to 3000 pound manatees, kids will explore the world of aquatic creatures. 

Here are some of the activities that you may do:

Get your hands on a variety of mollusks to oysters to quahogs in a touch tank. Get your hands wet monitoring water conditions and feeding fish and amphibians in tanks. 

Sketch live sea creatures. 

Go on a trek through wetlands and streams with nets and binoculars. 

Use models to explore the anatomy of sharks and whales. 

Watch a film clip on rare turtles and then reenact being on a beach patrol, tasked with monitoring and saving sea turtles and their nests. 

Listen to bird calls and water fowl by their chirps and nests.  

Listen to dolphins and become expert at deciphering what their different calls mean. Stage a rescue of an injured manatee.
