Calling junior marine biologist
The one-of-a-kind educational and career guidance program will enable students to step into the shoes of a marine biologist. They will get to experience what’s it like to care for 300 different species and over 46,000 animals inside the Middle East’s largest aquarium.
Junior Marine Biologists will have the opportunity to gain behind-the-scenes access through this unique and hands-on after-school activity.
The National Aquarium’s dedicated staff will guide them through an immersive experience. They will engage them in caring for the aquarium’s diverse animal population.
Children will have the opportunity to assist with animal feedings, enrichment, cleaning, and daily checks. This is part of the National Aquarium’s animal husbandry program as well as explore the science behind caring for various species.
Junior Marine Biologists will also assist in caring for rescued sea turtles from the Wildlife Rescue Program. This is also part of the National Aquarium’s conservation education program.
For just AED 350 per child, parents can enroll their children in the National Aquariums’ Junior Marine Biologist program. This includes the three-hour behind-the-scenes access, as well as the aquarium journey.
The educational program is available for bookings Mondays to Thursdays from 4 PM to 7 PM and on Fridays from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
Junior Marine Biologists must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the activity and must be dressed in long pants and closed shoes, to ensure their safety.
