BUEI Kid’s Hour Saturday set to return with session on moray eels

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute’s Kids Hour Saturday is set to return with a session on moray eels.

This month’s event, to be held between 11am and 2pm on August 20, will include a screening of a short film, Moray Eels are Straight out of Alien, followed by a reading of the book Elroy the Eel by Jacqui Shepherd.

A BUEI spokeswoman said: “The film informs viewers of the many ways that different kinds of moray eels vary and yet still remain scary sea creatures of the deep.

“This short documentary also explores many characteristics of moray eels and how these vary among the 200 moray eel types.

“The book for this month’s Kids Hour tells an entertaining story of Elroy’s deep-sea adventures, while highlighting how being thankful can have a positive impact.

“With full-colour illustrations and fun facts about moray eels sprinkled throughout, this book brings the undersea world to life and is sure to stand out.”

Karla Lacey, CEO of the BUEI, added: “We are happy to provide the opportunity for kids to learn more about these great creatures of Bermuda’s oceans.

“As moray eels are endemic to Bermuda’s own aquatic ecosystem, this month’s Kids Hour should have a familiar feeling of home to it.”

Kids Hour Saturdays — intended for children between the ages of 5 and 12 — are free for members and $2.50 per child for non-members. Spaces are limited so advanced registration is encouraged.
