Caring for Flippered Friends

Ages: 8 to 13

Oceans of Fun is dedicated to providing topnotch welfare to the seals and sea lions that call us home.  From their environment, to their diets, to monitoring their behavior daily, our animal care team assesses the health of our animals on various levels to ensure they are receiving the best possible care. Our Caring for Flippered Friends program allows kids ages 8-13 to put themselves in the shoes of our animal care team and explore the many different components that keep our animals and their habitat healthy.  They will delve deep into one of the most important aspects of training: husbandry or voluntary medical work which our animals practice routinely to make any vet visit fun and positive! Participants in this program will learn all about the husbandry behaviors our animals know and how they are helping us conserve not only the ambassadors in our care but also their wild counterparts.  They will then apply this knowledge during poolside interactions with our seals and sea lions as they participate in a mock medical session to practice some of the husbandry behaviors our animals know!
