    relate to maybe like what they eat what they see in the sky what they hear on the beaches For example if you ask Have you ever wondered why it s foggy so much in San Francisco They can relate to the fog and know what it is and when it is Then when you say it s mostly due to upwelling they can put an image to the them and ultimately remember it later on If they can relate to something that happens a lot or already know about they re likely to understand and remember the information However I m 23 so I m going off summer camp experience What are some of the greatest challenges of the education programs Presenting the information linearly In front of the aquariums it s hard to not just go Oh and then there s the eel oh And then there s the giant green anenome and hey Check out the crab I tend to jump from subject to subject and I try not to but it s really difficult Well there s a number of cool animals in the aquariums and it s hard to not get sidetracked when the kids are so excited to see all the different animals and are asking so many different questions Yes And they have so many questions and you want to answer them all What s your favorite animal or plant Favorite Only one Marine Robyn giggles Well first thing that pops to mind is the Orca Yeah I think I ll go with them There s this rad story of them taking out a white shark In September of 1997 there were two Orcas spotted off the Farallones There was no real reason for them being there so the fishers go to see them There were two females one a little larger and earlier that morning they killed a sea lion and in doing so created an oil slick on the surface of the water from the sea lion s blubber So an hour later a white shark shows up It s rare to see them skimming the water s surface like that and then all of a sudden one of the Orca comes up from underneath and bites the white shark on the dorsal fin and flips it over and they just start eating it There s even been speculation that they were hunting for a white shark How s that I ve never heard of that theory that Orcas would hunt for the white shark deliberately Yes I know it sounds like science fiction but I read it in the Marine Mammal Journal if you want to read it It s a good read And this is the best part after that kill there were no more white sharks spotted for the rest of the entire hunting season It s like they knew that someone bigger was around and they were out of there Could you share the best quote from
