Children can learn about one of the planet’s smartest animals this weekend.

The next Kids Hour Saturday event, on Saturday at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, will feature two short films and a children’s book, written by Bermudian Joanne Ball-Burgess, all about dolphins.

A BUEI spokeswoman said: “Dolphins are known for being intelligent, family-oriented and loveable mammals. They are the perfect encapsulation of why we must protect their ocean home for generations to come.”

The event, which will be held at 11am and 2pm, is free for BUEI members and all caregivers and $4 for children of non-members.

The price of admission includes entry into the BUEI’s Discovery Centre and caregivers are required to stay at the event with their children.

People can call the institute’s gift shop on 294-0204 to reserve a spot for Saturday, as spaces will be limited.

Each Kids Hour Saturday series, held on the third Saturday of every month, centres on a different ocean creature. Manatees will be featured in May.
