Be a SEA LIFE Young Environmentalist!

The SEA LIFE Young Environmentalists are a group of 12 kids age 6-12 years old that have been selected to help with conservation messages throughout the year and participate in FUN activities at the aquarium. From canal cleanups to shark finning petitions to spreading the word about World Oceans Day, the Young Environmentalists are not only passionate about sea creatures, but they believe they can make a positive impact on our environment- even here in the desert!

What does it mean to be a Young Environmentalist?

  • Visit SEA LIFE throughout the year (usually on a weekend) and participate in exclusive activities for the Young Environmentalists. They will learn about an important conservation topic and help brainstorm ways to spread the message to their friends and families.

  • The Young Environmentalist will receive a free SEA LIFE Annual Pass, PLUS one for a member of their family.

  • Receive a Young Environmentalist t-shirt to wear to activities and events

  • Take on role of Young Reporter for the Bear Essential News

  • Most importantly, the Young Environmentalist program is FUN! They will explore the aquarium and its creatures in a whole new way with guidance from a SEA LIFE Expert.
