Each week this summer we will spotlight a different sea creature and talk to their caretakers! You won't believe the fun we will have learning, reading, and exploring the ocean. Partners include Santa Fe Zoo, Marine Land, the Sea Turtle Conservancy, UF Whitney Labs, Alachua Audubon Society, Florida Natural History Museum, Save the Manatee Club, and the Volusia Marine Science Center!
