Summer 2017 at SEA LIFE London
Summer is here and as everyone flocks to the beaches there is one thing that definitely will not be welcome on Britain’s sandy shores – Jellyfish! However, SEA LIFE London is on a myth-busting mission this year with its most recent experience, Ocean Invaders: Enter the world of the jellyfish. As the largest jellyfish facility in the UK, be prepared to journey with the jellyfish and learn about these fascinating creatures before you come face to face with them on your summer holidays.
The new interactive, sensory-led experience is divided into three areas – ‘Discover’, ‘Understand’ and ‘Wow’- where visitors can observe over 5,000 jellyfish and begin to unravel the mysteries surrounding them. Learn facts such as:
- Jellyfish catch their prey with their stinging tentacles
- Best way to treat a sting is with warm water and to wrap it in a hot compress
You will find the answer to more of your burning questions at SEA LIFE London, learning about their diets, lifecycle and why we can expect to see more and more of them in the next few years. All before heading on to an interactive game where you can put your new-found knowledge to the test!
SEA LIFE London’s experts will be on hand to fill you with jellyfish facts and help you find out what makes Jellyfish so unique. James Robson, resident Jellyologist, said: “If there is one creature you can be sure to see at the beach this summer, it is jellyfish. But, they are not as scary as you might think. There are a lot of myths surrounding the species, and at SEA LIFE London we want to work to debunk these while educating our visitors on what really makes them one of the most versatile and interesting creatures in the world.”
SEA LIFE London is home to a huge range of marine life. As well as visiting Ocean Invaders, guests are invited to explore the frozen extremities of the Antarctic life at Penguin Point with our colony of Gentoo penguins, stroll through our glass Ocean Tunnel and into our Rainforests of the World – experiencing what life is like beneath the tropical treetops for our Cuban crocodile, piranhas and poison dart frogs.
