Ocean Quest: introductory programme on marine life and biology for school groups

With S.E.A. Aquarium being home to more than 100,000 marine animals across 1,000 species, it is no easy feat identifying and learning about all of them.

For example, do you know that the octopus has three hearts? Or that sea jellies have no brains?

This is why we came up with Ocean Quest – an introductory programme on marine life and biology, set within one of the world’s largest aquariums.

Guided tour by experienced educational facilitators

Students will discover plenty of fascinating facts about a wide variety of marine creatures. The best part? Students can ask our educational facilitators any burning questions they have about marine life and have them answered on the spot.

At Shark Seas Habitat, students will find out how some sharks are able to rest on the ocean floor while others need to keep swimming in order to breathe. Over at the Open Ocean Habitat, they will learn to tell the difference between Manta Rays and Stingrays.

Importance of marine conservation

Students will also learn about the 3 major marine conservation focus at S.E.A. Aquarium – Ocean Plastic Pollution, Sustainable Seafood and Climate Action for the Ocean.

At the Guardians of the S.E.A.A. learning about the importance of marine conservation. For example, marine animals such as sea turtles often mistake plastic bags for sea jellies (their natural food source), resulting in their untimely demise. This is why we should reduce our usage of plastic bags.
