Creature Connections

Join the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and the North Carolina Zoo for a new animal adventure that stretches across the state from land to sea!

On the second Thursday of the month throughout the school year, these wildlife protecting partners will share exciting information about animal species native to North Carolina, wildlife conservation, and how the zoo and the aquariums create enriching homes for the animals in their care. Spend an afterschool hour of fun and learning with a wild crew of zoo and aquarium educators!
