Join an Ocean Wise Educator at the Vancouver Aquarium to explore the inner workings of an animal through a live Squid dissection. Students will be introduced to the phyla Cephalopoda and the key characteristics that make this group of squids, octopuses, and cuttlefish so spectacular. Through an examination of the animal’s anatomy students will discuss how an animal’s adaptation helps them to survive in their environment.
