Jawsome Sharks and friends!

Become a Jawsome Shark Ranger this Easter!

Details

Take a dive into the deep at Sea Life Scarborough this Easter and become the newest recruits of the Jawsome Rangers and fulfill the mission of finding the missing Top Trumps cards!

Guests will be tasked with helping Professor Finn locate the Top Trumps cards around the Centre. This latest activity from SEA LIFE marks an exciting collaboration with Top Trumps, offering guests the chance to play the game in real life interactivity.

Along the way, guests will discover facts about the different species of sharks and will have the chance to learn more about the SEA LIFE sharks and rays.

At the end of the trail Professor Finn will greet the new Jawsome Rangers and share some of his expert knowledge of the fascinating sharks.

And that’s not all, trainee rangers will have the opportunity to get hands on with some shark related items including models of shark teeth.

Once the trainee Jawsome Rangers have qualified they’ll get a special Top Trumps gift to take home and then they’ll move into the activity zone.
