This August at the Scottish Seabird Centre, North Berwick, the dolphins and crabs take centre stage with an interactive science show and puppet performance for families.
What’s for Snack? (ideal for age 2+) is an interactive puppet show with Seabird team member, Craig the Crab. With sing-a-long fun, young visitors will be asked to help Craig who has eaten some marine litter by mistake. He will be joined by some of his seaside friends who will aim to help him get rid of his sore tummy.
Older kids are invited to attend Ocean-a-rific (recommended for age 6+) with Dr Dolph Lingerin-aboot. With scientific experiments, games and gaffes, visitors are invited to help dolphins understand what is happening to the seas around Scotland.
Malcolm Watson, Seabird Science Communicator, said: “Dolphins and crabs are always hugely popular with visitors young and old alike. As we make our move towards a wider marine-based Centre, we are keen that people appreciate the variety of amazing marine wildlife, including seabirds.
“With Craig the Crab and Dr Dolph Lingerin-aboot there will be lots of music, fun and games, ideal for keeping the family entertained, whatever the weather this August.”
In addition to the daily events, there will be a range of family-friendly activities in the Discovery Centre including special trails for dolphins and puffins, expert mini talks on a range of seabirds, as well as the Kids’ Zone and Kids’ Corner.
