Sea Life Orlando has announced a contest to select five children to serve on its Young Environmentalists Panel. They will serve as ambassadors to help educate the community about Sea Life and its local and global conservation efforts.
Sea Life Orlando is asking children in Florida, between the ages of 7-12, who are passionate about marine life and conservation, to submit an entry by writing a 150-word essay or filming a 30-second video on ways they protect the environment. Finalists will have the chance to participate in preview events leading up to grand opening, and participate in special events throughout the year where they will help communicate Sea Life’s conservation messages.
“We are excited to launch our Young Environmentalists Panel and begin engaging with young marine life enthusiasts in our community,” said Steve Blair, displays curator for Sea Life Orlando. “From protecting our oceans to helping with animal conservation, our young panelists will not only promote our conservation outreach, but also help to inspire and educate others throughout the State of Florida.”
