At Sea School

Participants in Sanibel Sea School’s
first week of Winter Camp, Flipping
out for Penguins Week, enjoyed
four days of ocean fun and lear ning
about the unusual, flightless birds that
inhabit the southern ocean. “We thought
penguins were an appropriate topic for
the end of December, since they are
highly adapted to life in and around very
cold waters,” said Nicole Finnicum, the
organization’s director of education.
Campers practiced diving for food
like penguins, did an experiment to
understand how oil helps keep penguins’
feathers dry, and compared their height
to that of different penguin species. They
also made penguin art, waddled through
an obstacle course, and participated in
an activity about melting glaciers to learn
how climate change is affecting penguins
and the areas where they live.
Sanibel Sea School is a 501(c)3
nonprofit whose mission is to improve
the ocean’s future, one person at a time.
The organization offers two weeks of
winter camp and many weeks of summer
camp each year. To learn more about
these and other programs, visit www.
