Why a visit to SEA LIFE is important
The problems facing our ocean today aren’t going to be solved in one generation. This means to make real progress, we need to instill environmental stewardship of our ocean in our children.
- Give children a connection with the ocean – some children may never have seen one
- Bring the ocean to life and make it relatable – the creatures are real
- Concrete ways that children can make a difference, to protect the oceans for generations to come
- The underwater world of the ocean is an amazing and inspiring one, where incredible sea creatures and colorful habitats abound. SEA LIFE is where this world can come alive for children, as they dive into a world of amazing discovery.
