Number of days: 5 days

Ever wonder what it takes to care for hundreds of aquarium animals on a daily basis? Get the “inside scoop” of a job at the aquarium. Dissect a squid, investigate sharks, help feed the critters, run water quality tests, have up-close creature encounters, and even create some enrichment activities for our aquarium residents! Come out with a richer understanding of daily animal care and the science behind running an aquarium. We’ll even visit the zoo to compare a day in the life of an aquarist to a day in the life of a zoo keeper.
