Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a professional animal keeper? Learn all about this coveted role these school holidays with SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium’s Junior Keeper activity!
Kids can listen to five fascinating keepers talk about their responsibilities as they journey through the amazing underwater world at the aquarium. As kids locate each keeper on screens placed throughout SEA LIFE Melbourne, they can fill in their worksheet to create a comprehensive list of what’s involved in the day in the life of a keeper.
The Junior Keeper activity runs from Saturday 19 December 2020 to Tuesday 26 January 2021 and focuses on the team members who look after the sharks and rays in the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium, Pinjarra the 5.5-metre-long saltwater crocodile and the pulsing jellyfish in the Ocean Invaders zone. You’ll also be able to learn from the dedicated penguin keepers looking after the colony of King and Gentoo penguins and the team caring for the freshwater turtles, Murray Cod and water dragons in the Rainforest zone.
Kids who complete their Junior Keeper worksheet will be presented with a certificate at the end of their trip to the aquarium!
Visitors to SEA LIFE Melbourne these school holidays can also see a myriad of other sea creatures including colourful tropical fish, sea turtles, lionfish and more.
The aquarium will be open seven days per week from 19 December 2020 to 26 January 2021.
