Young Environmentalists

Ready to become a Young Environmentalist?

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!

What does it mean to be a Young Environmentalist?

  • Visit SEA LIFE throughout the year (usually on the weekend) and participate in exclusive activities & behind-the-scenes events for the Young Environmentalists.
  • Participate in off-site events, like river/stream clean-ups & visits to area conservation centers.
  • Learn about important conservation topics and help brainstorm ways to spread the message to friends and families.
  • The Young Environmentalist will receive:
    • Free SEA LIFE Annual Pass
    • Young Environmentalist shirt to wear to activities and events
    • SEA LIFE name badge and goody bag
  • Most importantly, the Young Environmentalist program is FUN! They will explore the aquarium and its creatures in a whole new way with the guidance from a SEA LIFE Expert.

Young Environmentalist events include: 

  • River & park clean-ups at local conservation areas!
  • Behind-the-scenes education and fun activities at SEA LIFE Aquarium
  • Off-site education that focuses on local conservation. Learning locally to impact globally! 
  • Live sea creature feedings of rays, sharks & even our sea turtle, Gertrude!
