Live-Stream: Sea Life Melbourne
The Melbourne aquarium is live streaming its sea creatures for all to see.
UPDATE: APRIL 7, 2020 — Some good news for your social feed: Sea Life Melbourne is now home to two adorable king penguin chicks. And you can meet them via livestream at 10am AEST on Wednesday, April 8. One fluffy baby bird is called 'Sparkie', but the aquarium is looking for suggestions for other the littl'un. Details on how to submit a name will be revealed during the livestream.
Melbourne's Sea Life Aquarium is live streaming playtime and feeding time with some of its cutest and scariest sea critters in the lead up to Easter.
At 9am AEDT on Saturday, April 4, you can get up close and personal with swarms of jellyfish, learn the ins and outs of their luminous lives and watch them being fed by Sea Life's ocean expert and 'Jelly Queen' Diane. If you haven't had a chance to check out the aquarium's million-dollar Ocean Invaders exhibition, this'll be a good chance for you to have a little virtual tour.
On Wednesday, April 8 at 10am AEST, you can watch the gentoo and king penguins at playtime, sliding around their icy home and gobbling many fish. Then, kicking off the long weekend, will be another live-streaming session at 11am AEST on Friday, April 10, which will see keeper Brianna chatting about a bunch of cute (and maybe slightly scary) animals that lay eggs. To tune in, head head to Sea Life Melbourne's Facebook page.
Thankfully, these aren't the only live-streams and digital content the aquarium is planning. Keep an eye on future events, including possible shark feedings, penguin hangs and tropical fish tours, here.
