Wild food webs & fishy feasts 🏅

NZ Marine Studies Centre —

How do local sea creatures adapt to catch their food, avoid predators and stay alive? Find out on Sunday 28 April at the NZ Marine Studies Centre, Portobello. Book for workshop sessions 12.30-2pm or 3–4.30pm

Join a marine scientist at the NZ Marine Studies Centre at Portobello to find out about marine food webs - who eats what in the ocean.  

You will see microscopic lankton, investigate the stomach contents of a squid or shark and enjoy close up viewing of a variety of sea animals in our tanks and touch pools.

The aquarium is no longer open to the general public so this is a unique opportunity to see some of the marine creatures that are kept at the Centre for education programmes.

Children attending this event can earn a Kiwi Guardian Wild Dunedin Medal. The Marine Studies Centre will give you the information on how to claim your medal on www.wilddunedin.nz

Recommended for adults and children over 5yrs. Cost: Adults $15 Children $10
