Bring the ocean home – Galway Aquarium goes virtual

Galway Daily news Bring the ocean home - Galway Aquarium goes virtual

Galway Atlantaquaria Ireland’s largest aquarium is proud to present our Aquarium and native species online, for the first time in our 20 year history! 

These highly produced episodes provide a unique insight into our Aquarium staff, personality, and passion for the diversity of life in our coastal waters. 

This series of online episodes features factual information, stories and footage of our species inside the Aquarium. 

Learn about the lifecycle of our most common shark species, the dogfish and also find out how our actions can impact the environment in both positive and negative ways.

Professionally produced over the last few months, these episodes capture years of education, many marine topics in 8 minute segments, with a fun ‘Think Tank’ quiz at the end. There is something for the whole family to enjoy. 

The episodes were also featured during science week and enjoyed by hundreds of school children all over Galway City & County.

Many evaluations said similar compliments of the episodes, “I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the six virtual tour lessons for science week. The children really enjoyed them and adored answering the ‘Think Tank’ quiz. They also did the worksheets. Just wanted to say well done and thanks to your team.”
3rd and 4th Class

The episodes can be accessed through VIMEO and can be leased through their Clearbooking platform on our website. All purchases will also support a donation to the RNLI Galway Lifeboats, so truly it’s the season for giving.
