Join us on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month for Marine Science Sunday - a FREE engaging ocean-inspired classroom series from our education experts.
This month we celebrate Halloween with a creepy collection of stories about the animals that live in the deepest parts of the ocean! Learn how elephant seal's can dive to 5000 feet and stay underwater for 2 hours at a time without imploding (!), find out how a sperm whale searches for its nemesis - the mysterious giant squid, and discover more about spooky looking animals like the Vampire Squid and Goblin Shark.
FREE Classroom Programs: Creaturs of the Deep- 12 PM and 2 PM (1 hour sessions)
Join Adam Ratner, Visitor Programs Coordinator and animal care volunteer at The Marine Mammal Center, for an interactive presentation on the Creatures of the Deep, featuring seals, whales, and sharks! Sessions are held in the Center's classroom at 12pm and 2pm. A great compliment to the docent-led tour!
