Education guide

I was delegated the responsibility of guiding school pupils inside the aquarium and educate them about marine biology and conservation. I also conducted lessons outside the aquarium, topics included, biodiversity and pollution. For some children it was their first time seeing marine animals, this presented me an opportunity to providing new information and expand their knowledge and career choices
