World Animal Day Recap: Mantas, Otters, & Craft

It was an amazing turnout at our conservation night last Saturday (27 Oct 2018) with more than 100 Guardians of the S.E.A.A. members in attendance.

The evening kicked off with an otter sharing session by Ade Kurniawan from the Singapore Zoo.

Ade shared plenty of fun facts about otters, such as the different species native to Singapore and their characteristics.
When it was time for the Manta Ray feeding session, everyone rushed to the front of the Open Ocean Habitat viewing panel to get the best view.

Participants watched in awe as our aquarists engaged the Manta Rays in this special enrichment exercise. Through this interaction, our Manta Rays have learnt to recognise their trainers, as well as allow our aquarists to have a closer look at them to check on their health and well-being.

More insightful information on Manta Rays were also shared during this session, such as differences between them and other rays.
Mai our Manta Ray mascot sent us a message during the event, sharing about how Manta Rays are affected by plastic pollution. She also invited guests to join in the craft activity.

Time to upcycle some old tee shirts into hardy, reusable tote bags!

And look who’s here!

Mai ‘s surprise visit absolutely thrilled her fans.
