Chance to face your fears at Sea Life Centre


Scarboroug­h Sea Life Centre is preparing for the first frightful event of its kind.

For one week only guests to the centre will have the opportunit­y to come face-to-face with some of the world’s most feared predators.

Daisy the American Alligator, John the Reticulate­d Python and other appropriat­ely named creatures are set to take centre stage at the new Face Your Fears event starting on Monday October 26 until Sunday November 1.

Aquarist Jordan Woodhead said: “We are thrilled to be able to give our guests the opportunit­y to get closer than ever before to these amazing creatures in a safe and controlled environmen­t.

“American Alligators are native to South Eastern America and can grow over four metres long so this really is a one of kind chance to come close to Daisy who is currently still a juvenile.

“In the wild American Alligators are facing conservati­on challenges due to the growing popularity of skinned goods such as boots and handbags. We are privileged to have Daisy as the perfect ambassador to help educate the public about the dangers surroundin­g these incredible creatures.”

Face Your Fears aims to inspire and educate guests about conservati­on issues surroundin­g amazing creatures throughout the globe. There will be talks and handling opportunit­ies. To find out more go to www.visitseali­ scarboroug­h
