JAW-some Sharks

Separate fact from fiction when it comes to these misunderstood animals. Explore updates from OCEARCH’s Global Shark Tracker and meet the local sharks that frequent our Carolina coasts. Plus, learn how you can protect sharks and their relatives in the wild.

Migration & Hibernation

January 29, 2020
We’ve got gloves and jackets to keep us warm, but how do animals adapt to changing weather? Discover animals that migrate, stay active, or hibernate to handle the colder temperatures. Do a population study on migrating butterflies, track shark and bird migrations, research fur density of mammals, and learn about the sleepy species who hibernate through it all. Enjoy making your own up-cycled bird feeder to use at home with your feathered friends.
