Each year, SEA LIFE Kansas City selects a group of Young Environmentalists that share our passion for conservation, the environment and the creatures that call our oceans home. The Young Environmentalists are a group of 10 kids, ages 6-10 years old. Through a number of FUN activities both at the aquarium and around the area, the Young Environmentalists help spread conservation messages to the world!
From lake clean-ups 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 - right here in Kansas City!
