Easter is right around the corner, bringing with it our first Ocean Squad session! This year we have so much on offer – here are five reasons you shouldn’t miss out!
Join our Ocean Squad leaders in a snorkel safari around Plymouth Sound, exploring our shores and discovering the different shapes, sizes and colours of our local UK wildlife. Don’t worry if snorkelling is something new to you, as our BSAC qualified leaders will teach you all the skills you need to be a more confident snorkeller!
Create a campaign video for our oceans
Been inspired by Blue Planet 2 and want to help others protect our oceans? Create a campaign about an area of conservation that you’re passionate about and help your friends and families to ‘Think Ocean’ in everything that they do! Learn why the oceans are a vital part of our planet, from the air we breath to the food we eat, and what things can be done to protect them.
Put on a lab coat and learn what it takes to be a marine biologist! We’ll be doing some crazy science experiments and discover what these scientists get up to everyday, exploring how the ocean influences our everyday lives, dissecting marine creatures, and there may even be an explosion or two!
Want to know what it takes to maintain all of our exhibits? Join us and explore the behind-the-scenes areas of the aquarium, seeing the top of our 2.5 million litre Atlantic Ocean Tank where our sharks live, and learning how our biologists are able to feed all 4000 animals that we have here!
Your Ocean Squad session will get you out of your comfort zone and doing things you’ve never done before! We also have a boat trip around Plymouth Sound, undertaking more experiments, sustainable seafood cooking with professional chefs and our beach fun session. But that’s not all! As well as all of the amazing activities you’ll be doing, you’ll receive an Ocean Squad t-shirt and bag, a memory stick with all of your memories from your week and a year’s pass to the National Marine Aquarium, so you can come back and relive your week!
