Running an aquarium requires a lot of attention to the health of the animals. This fun-filled, hands-on class will introduce you to animal husbandry and take you behind-the-scenes to meet the staff responsible for their health and see how we care for the variety of animals in our collection. We will compare the anatomy of various animals and perform a squid dissection to understand the variation in body systems. Participants are asked to wear closed-toe shoes.
