Window on the Mediterranean
Hello Sea Israel Supporters!
This Fall it’s all about education:
- The marine education information station at the Wet Side Story exhibit was open every day for the duration of the summer school vacation and students attending our summer camp also learned about the importance of conserving aquatic habitats.
- Our Education Department have started the process of designing education programs for the new facility so that we can hit the ground running when Sea Israel opens in 2016.
- But most exciting of all, the first instalment of the educational website has launched! Window on the Mediterranean provides a variety of educational content on the Mediterranean Sea for all ages including write-ups, videos, cartoons, and more. Click through on the link provided below to take a look and get started on learning more about the Mediterranean Sea and all of its extraordinary creatures!
Construction is proceeding according to schedule and it is truly remarkable to see the buildings and tanks forming before our eyes. Take a look at the construction video in the links below to get a feel of how rapidly things are moving at the construction site.
We aim to continue generating more educational content for the website which will expand in time to cover topics related to all of Israel’s aquatic habitats (also the Red Sea, freshwater habitats and the Dead Sea).
Please continue to spread the word about the Sea Israel Aquarium – Israel’s first aquarium and an essential educational tool to raise awareness of the challenges facing our aquatic habitats. We are excited to see the progress being made every day. Still, the best is yet to come!
