Hop to it

24th September 2004 at 01:00
Some of the world's weirdest amphibians are hopping, crawling and swimming at the "Fascinating Frogs!" exhibitions at the Blue Reef Aquariums in Portsmouth and Tynemouth. Aquarists are on hand to talk about breeding programmes at the tropical and coral reef nurseries and explain how an octopus can unscrew jam jars. Pupils can learn why, despite defences ranging from sonic booms, chemical weapons and fishing rods, many fish are under threat and need protecting. Tours are tailor-made to specific educational needs on topics as diverse as marine biology, tourism and photography. Admission: Adults pound;5.95, children pound;3.95, or free with an adult and a voucher from the website. Tel: 01373 836499; www.bluereefaquarium.co.uk
