Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium is pleased to welcome its new veterinarian Dr. Adrienne Atkins, who will oversee the care of the diverse collection of resident animals at Mote. In addition, she will be involved in the care of sick and injured dolphins, small whales and sea turtles at Mote’s Dolphin & Whale Hospital and Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital.
Buoys and ghouls of all ages are invited to dress up in costume for a Night of Fish, Fun & Fright from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21, 2016 at Mote Aquarium. Sail the spooky seas and discover creatures from the deep in a safe and fun trick-or-treating zone. If you get hungry, enjoy deep sea delights in the "Diner of the Dead." Parents and children ages 2-5 are also invited to participate in free Mommy & Me sessions as well as special educational activities for all ages. And don't miss our signature underwater pumpkin carving in our spooktacular shark exhibit!
