Marine animals make ideal teaching tools. Dolphins, whales, seals, and sea turtles are charismatic and interesting. The ocean depths in which they live are mysterious and exciting. By using marine animals as subject material, National Marine Life Center instructors address topics from biology to physics, writing composition to art, math to technology. Marine animals also make ideal subjects for lessons on conservation and human impacts on our environment. Because children are interested in marine animals, they are inspired to learn and take positive action. To schedule an education program for your school or community group, call 508.743.9888.

“We only conserve what we love, we only love what we understand,
we only understand what we are taught.”
