On the heels of October's popular "Gone Batty" workshops, a new youth workshop theme this November will have kids exploring the amazing underwater world of our oceans, and discovering how they can make a difference.
"Under the Sea" activities will take participants into the deep as they learn about the lives of marine animals. Games and crafts will vary but may include making a "sock-topus" or creating an underwater room decoration, experimenting with feathers in oil to understand what oil spills mean for marine birds and playing "Under the Sea" trivia games.
"As human beings, we tend to be fascinated with the sea, and a lot of kids have an interest in careers like marine biology," says Paula Neuman, BC SPCA humane education manager. "This inherent interest is a great jumping-off point to making connections between our actions and their impact on marine life, and why it matters."
"Under the Sea" workshops will be offered on school holidays or weekends at 10 BC SPCA locations in the Lower Mainland, south Vancouver Island and Okanagan. Registration is now open; learn more and sign up today.
