A Special Perspective on FWRI
By: Caroline McKeel
I thought that my trip to the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) was an amazing experience for a kid who loves the ocean! My favorite part was learning about the animals that are preserved in the collections. My favorite animal there was the hammerhead shark head because I had never seen a hammerhead shark in my life.
I also liked learning about red tide because if kids learn about those subjects now we can better prepare for the future. And I thought it was cool that they have mini m&m’s (I LOVE M&M’S)! FWRI is an incredible place to learn about all that is happening in the ocean!
