Postponed – What Do Whales Eat? STEM workshop for ages 8-12

7 March - 7 March, 2020

We are very sorry to announce that we are having to postpone What Do Whales Eat? until further notice. Claire Lacey, the whale biologist who is facilitating the workshops, has discovered that a planned fieldwork research trip to the Antarctic has been brought forward and unfortunately this clashes with the workshop date.

Claire regrets this very much but has to give this research trip priority. We are trying to arrange a new date with Claire and hope to have this confirmed shortly. Please keep an eye on our social media profiles and Eventbrite page for an announcement of the new date.
