Young citizen scientists join sharklab on the hunt for mermaid's purses

Baby Shark Bites! Citizen Science Drop-in Workshop 11am until 3pm

Become a SharkLab Technician for the day and learn about the Sharks, Rays and Skates that live in the Bay and receive a SharkLab Badge and Certificate at the end.

Fun Hands-on Citizen Science Experiments; expect to get a little wet as we explore the undersea world of a baby shark.

Do we have sharks in Sandown Bay? What is a shark? How are they born? Are they big enough to eat you? How can we look after them?

You’ll never look at Sandown Bay in quite the same way again!
