The City of Long Beach, Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine’s Animal Care Services Bureau (ACS) and the Friends of Long Beach Animals will sponsor an Explorer Academy for qualified youth ages 14 (must be 8th grade graduate) and not yet 20, who are interested in learning about animal related occupations including animal handling, legal operations, and veterinary practice.
Imagine a world in total darkness, a mysterious place where few humans have ever traveled. The deep ocean is one of the last places on our planet that is largely unexplored. Starting this summer, visitors to the Aquarium of the Pacific will be transported into the dark depths of the ocean, where they will encounter unusual animals that live beyond the reach of light.
