SEA LIFE Junior Rangers

Ready to become a SEA LIFE Junior Ranger?

SEA LIFE’s Junior Rangers program gives children who have an interest in science and/or environmental conservation an opportunity to expand their understanding of scientific topics in a fun and engaging way. Junior Rangers will work with SEA LIFE’s Curator and his team of aquarists and education specialists on fun events at the aquarium as well as off-site events that will contribute to local conservation efforts. With exclusive access to SEA LIFE special events, Junior Rangers may have the opportunity to be featured on our social pages or even in a press story!

As SEA LIFE’s Junior Rangers, they (and their families) will get unlimited entry to the aquarium and be invited to participate in events throughout the year. The Junior Rangers program lasts a year at which time the group is asked to help us select the next group of recruits.
