Calling all Junior Penguin Keepers!
Visit SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s Aquarium during the Spring school holidays to go on a Junior Penguin Keeper adventure!
The activities are available from Saturday 26 September to Sunday 11 October to encourage kids to discover fascinating facts about the King and Gentoo penguins and the wonderful team who care for them.
There is a Junior Penguin Keeper quiz trail for kids to follow through the aquarium and everyone who completes the quiz will go in the draw to win one of five exclusive penguin gift bags!
The SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s education team is hosting penguin talks and Penguin Keepers will also be available to answer all sorts of penguin-related questions straight after each talk with spot prizes for the kids with the best queries! Please check here for opening hours, as times are subject to change with covid restrictions.
Kids can also check out SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s Facebook page for virtual Junior Penguin Keeper activities including downloadable worksheets, videos and interviews with the aquarium’s Penguin Keepers.
The Junior Penguin Keeper activities are designed to help kids learn more about these fascinating flightless birds. SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s is home to the only colony of sub-Antarctic penguins in New Zealand and the birds are one of the most popular creatures at the aquarium.
Guests can also wander through the world’s first curved aquarium tunnel, meet rescued sea turtles in Turtle Bay and get up close with huge crayfish, octopus and moray eels in the Fish Gallery.
All visitors must pre-book their tickets online in advance, where they can save up to 20%.
