You’ll be dazzled by the tiny star-like twinkling of bioluminescent plankton. Learn about the impacts of ocean acidification on creatures such as Sea Angels. Search for angel wing seashells on local beaches. Study some of your favorite cherubs, baby sea turtles. Learn about their life cycles and how you can become one of their guardian angels. Earn your wings this summer with Sea Angels camp.
