Who’s your favourite Ocean Critter?

A wandering Whale, the galloping Seahorse, cheeky Penguins, sleepy Sealions or a jumping Jellyfish?

To celebrate Seaweek, and to show how much we all care for the sea, come along to CAN and during the month of March where you can join in our ‘Underwater World’ drop-in activity!

For just a $5 contribution, you can dive into the recycled materials and beachy finds on the tables and make your own Ocean Critter to add to the watery habitat, and enter our very special competition.

You can make your critter as imaginative, or as crazy as you like. Make a real splash with your creation and add it to the installation.

The Ocean Critters installation will be on display to the public until 29th March when Jake Brookie from the National Aquarium will be judging the competition in two categories; Under 16’s and Over 16’s (so adults you can join in too!) There are lots of fabulous prizes to be won!

If you decide to go beach collecting, and bring some finds with you to make your critter, that’s OK too! Or you might decide to make your critter at home and bring it in. If you do this, entry to the competition costs just $5 and you will need to fill in an entry form. Either way, you’ll find this a great way to support a cleaner ocean, and care for the sea while having some fun at the same time.

Download an entry form on the CAN website: http://www.thecan.co.nz/can-listings/ocean-critters/

As this is an unsupervised activity, all children must be accompanied by an adult to journey into the deep.

As always, if you just want to view the Critters on display, entry is free.

Open during our normal opening hours of 10am – 4pm Mon-Sat, and 10am – 2pm on Sundays.
