Merry ‘Fishmas’ from SEA LIFE Blackpool

Merry ‘Fishmas’ from SEA LIFE Blackpool

The team at SEA LIFE Blackpool have come up with a novel way to ‘decorate’ the Kingdom of the Seahorses’ area of the centre by adding Christmas baubles to each of the tanks.

The aptly name Big Bellied species of seahorse love to hang from the red and green glass baubles creating their very own real life Christmas decorations.

Jenn Newton, SEA LIFE General Manager says, ‘At first it was just a bit of fun for Christmas, but the Seahorses seem to really love their newly themed tanks. We hope our visitors will enjoy our new festive decorations this December.’

This Christmas, SEA LIFE Blackpool will be opening its very first Sharky’s Grotto where children will receive a free Christmas present and meet friendly mascot Sharky. There will also be lots of ‘Fishmas’ activities, a competition and charity collection for Merlin’s Magic Wand.

Visitors can join in the festivities throughout December and Sharky’s Grotto will be open every weekend from 30th November – 22nd December from 12noon - 3pm.

SEA LIFE Blackpool is part of a national Seahorse breeding programme which has helped to breed three different species of Seahorses at the centre in the last 2 years.

Merry Fishmas!
