Visiting the aquarium with your school is a great way to bring education alive. We offer many interactive opportunities for your students to learn more about marine environments.
If your are interested in bringing a school group to the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, please submit a REQUEST FORM.
Did you know that there are about 10,000 species of birds and they live in virtually every habitat on Earth? In this program we will talk about bird biology and behavior. You will learn about birds native to North Carolina and what they need to survive. We will also give an introduction to the species of birds that we have at the aquarium. After the indoor program we will visit Lorikeet Landing and get to meet and feed some of these magnificent creatures.
Would you like to give your school group a private encounter with a critter of your choice but don’t have a lot of time? Request a 15 minute Animal Meet and Greet and let your students say “hello” to one of our many live animals! This program is perfect for smaller groups that are on a schedule and a budget but desire an intimate experience to learn about a North Carolina native species! For $1 per student, choose one animal from the following: turtle, snake, alligator, frog, toad, salamander, hermit crab, sea star, or sea urchin.
Available Monday-Friday from September 1-February 28 only!
