Richmond Hill kids chat with ocean expert Kasey Gaylord of SeaTrek Mote Marine Laboratory during the April 24 conference.

Richmond Hill kids dove into the fascinating world of marine biology when they videoconferenced with an expert from the SeaTrek Mote Marine Laboratory, located in Sarasota, Florida.

Kasey Gaylord, a SeaTrek coordinator and educator, hosted the April 24 conference and showed the children what dinner time is like in the shark tank at the aquarium.

The future deep-sea explorers learned about different species of sharks such as the sandbar shark, nurse shark and black nose shark, as well as other sea animals such as barracudas and sting rays.

Kids got the chance to see how sharks feast and how the experts train them to behave during feeding time. The children’s interests were peaked, and they “fished” for more information during the conference’s question-and-answer session.
