Dive to the bottom of the ocean to discover Scotland's incredible marine habitats and the amazing creatures that call our deep ocean home with Dynamic Earth's fun family drop-in activities. Get up close to real-life specimens of creatures collected from the deep, carry out your own biodiversity survey of a cold-water coral reef and discover all the species that live right here in Scotland's seas.
Find out about the threats to these environments, such as ocean acidification, with exciting experiments and demonstrations to learn how we can protect these important habitats. Finally, use all the amazing creatures you'll see as inspiration for crafting and colouring your own funky fish hat!
These activities are part of Dynamic Earth’s Discover the Deep project that has received funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players.
