Ocean Hero

The ocean hero program delves into a deeper understanding of the biology of marine creatures and how they connect with the oceanic environment. We also introduce the topic of conservation and discuss how we can help protect the ocean. A touch-and-feel session with the animals, artefacts and equipment is included.
