Marine Education​

The oceans are best appreciated through exploration, indulging in the beauties of coral reefs and sandy beaches. Marine life presents some of the greatest biodiversity of any ecosystem. Indeed, life began in the oceans and has since evolved to fit an abundance of evolutionary niches. We want to introduce you to the fascinating world beneath the waves because it has so much to offer.

Hands-On Presentations

From learning the proper way to handle sea life in the wild, to learning some of the secrets that makes sea life so interesting, our presentations are designed to instil the audience with a sense of appreciation for these wonderful creatures.

 

With beauties like starfish, sea urchins, crabs, and shrimp, students of all ages (yes, even you!) can embrace the fun side of learning! Whether at the beach or in a classroom, our activities are designed to be engaging and educational. To learn more about setting up a presentation, please contact us!

Reef Aquariums

Reef aquariums are one of the most powerful and engaging ways to learn about marine life and the science that makes that life possible. The ocean is a soup of chemicals with life spread about everywhere. Understanding how the balance of those chemicals affects marine organisms is tantamount to developing an appreciation of the effects of climate change on our oceans.

 

We offer assistance in considering and planning reef aquariums for educational purposes. For assistance in developing or maintaining an educational tank, please contact us, and if you're interested in learning more, click below!

Bioluminescence

Did you know that there are a variety of organisms that glow in the dark naturally? This process is known as bioluminescence and is the result of chemical interactions in an organism's body. All kinds of plants and animals display this ability, including lightning bugs, fireflies, jellyfish, fish, and phytoplankton. There are even beaches and lakes filled with bioluminescent algea that you can swim, paddle, and surf in!

 

One of the best ways to learn about this interesting and unique characteristic is by growing your own phytoplankton capable of bioluminescence! Dinoflagellates are a group of phytoplankton capable of glowing in the dark, and they are easy to care for too! It's as easy as maintaining a light/day cycle and fertilizing them with nutrients on a weekly basis. Then, at night, you can swish them around in a jar and wash them light up!

Marine STEM

Science Activities

You don't need to swim in the ocean to learn about it. With a variety of activities and projects to learn about ocean acidification, microplastics, marine life and more, there is never a shortage of educational tools for the classroom.

Snorkeling and

SCUBA Diving

Exploratory snorkeling and scuba diving trips help you discover the eccentricities of both marine habitats and freshwater ecosystems
