Become a Marine Biologist for a Day and be immersed in a full day of marine science:

  • Get up close and touch live marine creatures
  • Find out why animals look and feel the way they do, how they function and what their role is in the marine environment
  • Learn what problems humans create for them and why we need to look after them.
  • Learn about Sharks and the important role they play in the marine ecosystem
  • Understand why sharks sometimes attack humans
  • Touch real shark jaws

In Marine Biologist for a Day, our aim is to educate students with the right information based on science to create informed, future custodians of the ocean and all its wonderful creatures within it.

Parents are invited to arrive half an hour before the conclusion so they may be educated by their children, giving the kids a chance to show off the wealth of new information they have acquired. Parents will be amazed just how much their kids remember.

Marine Biologist for a Day will be an experience they will never forget.

Spaces are limited, bookings essential!
