Sea Creatures: Life Beneath The Ocean, offers a glimpse into life beneath the ocean like never before. Occasionally, we get a glimpse of their world, when they surface, but for the most part these sea creatures are unknown to us. In fact, humans have spent far more time exploring space, than they have studied the oceans.
The Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), is the Official Marine Life Information Provider to the Sea Creatures Exhibition. SAMS have written and edited all educational information related to the specimens and wider exhibition content.
As our relationship with the blue planet becomes ever more intertwined, Sea Creatures: Life Beneath The Ocean, will educate and enthral audiences with fascinating facts, figures and information related to marine life, marine conservation and species conservation. Children and adults alike will make discoveries in ocean science and anatomy, never before seen in an exhibition environment.
For example, did you know that a human heart is basically the same as a whale’s heart? Do you know how whales keep their equilibrium and buoyancy breathing in sea water? Did you know that fins and arms have similar structures? Did you know the size and structure of the stomach tells us how long ago the creature joined the seas and what kind of food it takes to survive?
The exhibition is full of amazing facts like these and answers many of the mysteries of the deep, making it one of the most unique exhibitions in the world. We feel guests will gain profound insights into the structure and function of Sea Creature’s bodies in a way that, to date, has not been possible on such a comprehensive scale.
If you would like to visit the exhibition as part of a field trip or school trip, we recommend booking in advance. If you are unsure as to whether the exhibition is appropriate for your class and would like to see it beforehand, please request ‘one free teacher pass’, which will gain you free admittance.
