SOME LOVE FOR SEAQUARIUM’S NEW ARRIVALS!


Release Date: Monday 06 February 2017

The potentially life saving - Zebra danios


To celebrate all that is good about the deep, blue ocean, SeaQuarium Rhyl is holding a week long ‘Love Oceans’ event from Saturday 18 February until 26 February 2017. 


Staff at the aquarium will be highlighting the threats to the ocean and supplying some amazing facts, with extra talks and demonstrations taking place throughout the day. 

 

‘Love’ will be the theme of the week as guests find out which sea creature has the biggest heart, which species can survive without a heart and what unique animals are found in the heart of the ocean. They are also invited to investigate all sorts of fun and interesting facts such as what’s in a single drop of seawater.

 

On top of all of the extra activities, visitors will get the chance to see the important, newest arrivals at Rhyl - a shoal of amazing zebra danios.

 

Aquarist, Richard Morrilly exclaimed “While not being the biggest or most ferocious of animals, these small fish are still amazing! Zebra danios are capable of regenerating a large part of their heart, should any damage occur. It is for this reason that these danios are a focal species for the British Heart Foundation.”

 

He continued, “Zebra danios, or zebrafish as they’re often known, are a simple, small freshwater fish that have been at the very forefront of a lot of research, helping scientists understand more, not just about animals, but also human development and disease. They are truly amazing and we can’t wait for our guests to learn more about them too!”

 

Additional to the new arrivals, daily feeding demonstrations will showcase the species of sharks, rays and other fish found in British seas, as well as learning about the weird and wonderful sea creatures that can be discovered in rock-pools all along the British coastline. 

 

The South African fur seals will also be included in the oceanic celebrations with a love themed show and there will be the chance for guests to show the beautiful harbour seals some love with an added twist to the feeding demonstrations. Heart shaped pieces of enrichment will be added to every pot of food sold and all the money taken will go to the British Heart Foundation.

 

Guests can also take part in an interactive trail to solve clues and answer questions in order to win a prize. There will also be craft clubs taking place during the day, as well as special Discovery Sessions where guests can learn all sorts of amazing facts.

 

Seaquarium Rhyl is located on the Promenade and is open daily from 10am with last admission at 4pm. Tickets are valid all day, allowing guests to make the most of their visit by enabling them to take part in all the demonstrations and activities throughout the day.
