Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located next to the Pacific Ocean in San Pedro, California. The museum’s website offers a virtual tour of their exhibit hall that includes photographs and information about the many marine animals housed at the aquarium.

When you get to the site you can explore the exhibit areas that include: 

  • Kelp Forests – The richest habitat along the California rocky shores, kelp forests provide food and shelter to a large number of animals living on the shore and in the ocean.
  • Rocky Shores – a difficult place for critters to survive, with drying air at low tide and battering surf at high tide. Meet the animals that call this environment “home” including sea urchins, sea anemones, and sea hares.
  • Mudflats – A few animals have adapted to living in this shifting, moving habitat including halibuts and crabs. Meet them in this exhibit.
  • Open Ocean – Get to know some creatures that live in the deep sea including bizarre and beautiful fish – and sharks too!
  • Sandy Beaches – Meet the California Skate and a Sand Dollar

This website provides an overview of the aquarium’s exhibits and is an educational treat all by itself. It’s also a great way to prepare kids for a trip to an aquarium or tide pool.
