Every Thursday in June and July, marine educators at the UGA Aquarium will host virtual programs designed to inspire wonder and curiosity about the coast by featuring different activities and animals. These afternoons at the aquarium will include a mix of games, art, stories and virtual animal encounters that provide fun learning experiences about the ocean. Children of all ages are welcome, but activities are designed for ages 4-8 years old with an accompanying adult.
July 23: Horseshoe Crabs
What is that animal you see crawling out of the sea? Is it a stingray? Is it an alien? No! It’s a horseshoe crab. Horseshoe crabs are wonderfully weird and important animals found in our coastal ecosystems. Meet a live horseshoe crab and learn about these gentle animals and their unique physical characteristics during this virtual program.
