Participate in interactive sessions alongside Aquarium interpreters, biologists and trainers. You’ll be able to get a behind-the-scenes look at the habitats of the belugas, dolphins, sea otters, sea lions and sea turtle, where you’ll help our trainers in a feeding or training session. You’ll also learn how our conservation and research programs help us better understand these animals and the threats they face in the wild.
