Celebrate Earth Day all week at our Predation Celebration!

Believe it or not, although river otters look super cute, they are a top predator in the Bay Area (and can crack open shells with their teeth!). Come to Aquarium of the Bay this week to learn who the Bay’s biggest predators are and why they are so important to the ecosystem at our Predation Celebration. Throughout the week, the Aquarium’s PG&E Bay Lab is turned into the Predation Station, and we’ll have presentations and activities centered around a variety of different Bay Area predators, including sharks, river otters, and even sea stars. Celebrate planet Earth all week by getting up close to the Bay and its awesome animals at Aquarium of the Bay.
Date: Daily, NOW through April 27, 2014
Location: Aquarium of the Bay
