How is climate change affecting our oceans?

by What's On

Get in from the cold this February half term and explore The Deep’s exciting new exhibit called Changing Seas

Featuring Red lionfish, Dog faced pufferfish, Leopard moray eels and an amazing display of soft corals.

Visitors can learn all about how climate change is affecting our oceans and what this means for the animals who live there.

Did you know?

When the PH of the water is altered by even a tiny amount, the animals struggle to communicate, find food, find a mate or detect predators? But we can make a change.

Find out how you can help to safeguard the future of the oceans at the Critical Chemistry event.

Event running from Saturday 15 to Sunday 23 February.

Take part in:

  • A fun-packed family trail
  • Interactive presentations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
  • Face painting in the craft corner.
  • The ocean acidification challenge.

 Also on offer:

  • Catch the daily dive show at 2pm.
  • Penguin feeds at 11:30am and 3:30pm
  • Get hands-on in a touch pool session.
  • Take a walk through the viewing tunnel
  • Take a ride in the glass lift through the 10 metre Endless Ocean tank.

Little nippers can also enjoy:

  • The interactive magic floor
  • The fossil brushing station
  • A soft play area.

That’s not forgetting the other 5,000 animals

Including sharks, rays, sawfish, turtles, jellyfish, penguins and lots more! 

Plus The Deep also offers FREE return visits for 12 months on all standard tickets, which is great news as one visit just isn’t enough.

There is always something new to explore!
