We've taken a few educational boat trips over the years but yours was by far the best all-around experience. The highlight had to be the breadth of sea life we pulled up and investigated, interacted with and, of course, learn about."

Sand Tiger Shark Fun Fact

Looks closely at the sand tiger sharks in the "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Their snout and jaws are covered in tiny holes. These are receptors for the sharks' "sixth sense" – their ability to detect bioelectric fields emitted by other animals (including potential prey).

Voice for Animals
No, this badge isn't about learning how to bark like a sea lion or howl like a wolf. It's about becoming a voice for – an advocate for – the animals in your life. Conduct an experiment with goldfish and watch a seal show to investigate how animals are used for science and entertainment. Go "behind-the-scenes" to observe how we care for and protect our animals. And visit the Aquarium's "Go Fish" exhibit to explore issues surrounding regulations for fishermen and the efforts to create sustainable seafood.  2 hrs., 45 mi. $18 per Scout. /  Try-it: 1 hr., 45 mi. $15 per Scout.
