September 15th: We will feature Dwarf Seahorses to learn about their breeding program and the specialized care they receive both on exhibit at the Aquarium and at our offsite Animal Care Center, which is normally not available to the public! Learn what you can do to protect one of the smallest seahorses in the world.
September 29th: Join aquarists behind-the-scenes at our offsite Animal Care Center for a feeding session with our weedy Sea Dragons. Learn about what they eat, how we culture their food on site sustainably, and how we are working with this unique species to help conserve their wild populations.
We welcome Jennifer Wiles, MA LMHC, BC-DMT. Director Of Children's Services at Beth Israel Lahey Health at Home. Jennifer will be kicking off our September Speaker series: Grieving and Autism. The pandemic has created many challenges and emotions that individuals with autism and those that love them may find difficult to understand and manage. Jennifer will speak about:
What is grief
How we see it show up in children, teens and adults
How to support someone who is grieving
This interactive presentation will include a power point and poles.
