They were shown life-size models of minky whales and bottlenose dolphins and took part in workshops explaining their endangered habitats. Kieron Whissen, nine, said: 'It was good fun seeing all the animals. I didn't realise you could find them along our coastline. I liked the whale best because it was the biggest, but the great white shark was cool too.' Educational resources are available for schools, including a poster and curriculum-linked lesson plans.
