Birthday Party – for a Seal

St. Andrews -

Snorkel, at the Huntsman Marine Science Centre Aquarium in St. Andrews

ST. ANDREWS – He’s just like any other four-year-old – full of curiosity, occasionally mischievous, loves food, and likes to play. But this is no ordinary pre-schooler – this is a harbour seal called Snorkel, and he lives at the aquarium in St. Andrews.

The fun starts on  Saturday, June 26, the Huntsman Marine Science Centre is holding a celebration at the aquarium for the star attraction, Snorkel.
Snorkel will (hopefully) blow out a candle, Snorkel will do some of his tricks at the seal feeding, and then there’ll be cake, games, and more fun, for humans. Last year’s party was a lot of fun for all concerned, and Snorkel even received some gifts.

Snorkel, and his dad, Loki, have been big hits since their introduction to the aquarium in May, 2009. Loki was born at the Huntsman in 1996, and Snorkel was born at Storybook Gardens in London, Ontario. The Huntsman aquarium has lowered admission prices in 2010 as construction continues on the new discovery centre, set to open in June, 2011. For more information, contact (506) 529-1200.
