The Salish Sea is home to a diverse array of marine life, including some of the most beloved and fascinating pinnipeds: harbor seals, Steller seal lions, and elephant seals! These playful and intelligent creatures are an important part of the Salish Sea ecosystem. We believe in nurturing a love and respect for these incredible animals through education and hands-on learning opportunities.
Flipper Friends will be full of adventures as we explore and learn about the pinnipeds of the Salish Sea. Students will also explore the intertidal zone, play in a magical tree house, and play fun beach games!
Each student will become a Flipper Friend as they have an opportunity to adopt a stuffy harbor seal on the first day of camp.
Every program also includes a special boat ride to search for pinnipeds in the Salish Sea. One parent/guardian chaperone will be required to attend this trip.
We will also explore and learn about the surrounding eco-system and become junior scientists who are empowered to protect and share the story of the pinnipeds of the Salish Sea!
