Explore the amazing world of sea turtles. In this session we take a detailed look at the different species of sea turtle, their anatomy, and their fascinating lifecycle (think lots of cute hatchling videos!) We also look at the threats they face, and how we can help
Discover the wonderful world of some of the oceans’ most charismatic creatures. What do these marine mammals have in common? How are baleen and toothed whales different? Explore different species, like the bottlenose and spinner dolphins, orcas, blue whale, sperm whale and the narwhal!
Octopus, squid, and cuttlefish. These incredible creatures are cephalopods – which means ‘head-foot’. So, what’s the difference between an arm and a tentacle? Discover the answer to this, and so much more, as we take a detailed look at these intelligent, and crafty creatures
Coral reefs are hugely important ecosystems, but what are corals? How do they build these amazing underwater structures? What animals live in and on the reefs? What threats do they face, and how can we help? In this session, we answer these questions and so much more
Brrrr! How does marine life survive in the extreme conditions of the Arctic and Antarctic? Discover the amazing adaptations that have helped a group of marine animals make the freezer their home. We also explore the challenged they face as sea temperatures rise

Learn about our oceans’ mammals! Explore seals, manatees, sea otters and polar bears (whales & dolphins are marine mammals but they have their own dedicated session). How have these mammals made the sea their home? What role do they play in helping their ecosystems?

A Spooktacular and fangtastic look at the ghoulish and grizzly species of the ocean. They’ll be bats, zombies, ghosts, devils, goblins, vampires, and gruesome behaviour from some incredibly strange fish!
Discover how ocean creatures have mastered the art of camouflage. Whether it is to help them hide from predators, or to enable them to ambush their prey, there is no doubt that there are many underwater masters of camouflage residing in our oceans
My daughters did a session and I think it’s fair to say it was their favourite lesson by far! This is what homeschooling is all about! Engaging, interactive, fun learning. They absolutely LOVED it.
The program was wonderful! We have an active group of 1st graders this year and they were very engaged! Thank you so much!
The WiseOceans’ presentation held the interest of all the children in my P2/3/4 class. The style is informative, interactive, and fun. Weeks have gone by and the children still ask when WiseOceans will be coming back for a visit.
We really enjoyed your visit. All the children were enthusiastic about it and the teachers said how lovely it was to have an expert to answer the children’s questions. It was a great day and great value for money
