Experience Science, Exploration, & Adventure for all ages this summer at Birch Aquarium at Scripps. SEA Days features multi-generational learning about cutting-edge Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego research. Monthly events focus on current ocean topics with hands-on exploration, special activities, and the opportunity to interact with Scripps Oceanography scientists. 

SEA Days also provides an ideal venue for students, scouts, and others to meet requirements for “Interview a Scientist” or career-day projects. Programs are included with aquarium admission and take place from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. Join us for these dynamic opportunities to explore the ocean!

Sharks on the Line

As sharks are fished in record numbers and their populations continue to decline, protecting these key predators is more important than ever. Meet local researcher Dovi Kacev (former Scripps Oceanography field technician and current Ph.D. candidate at San Diego State University) to hear more about the value of shark research to informing and shaping fisheries policy.
