Almondvale Shopping Centre is not a place where you would normally associate aquatic life with, despite customers looking to catch a deal. This week, 4th – 8th November, shoppers at the Livingston complex will be able to have a look at various underwater species as Deep Sea World‘s Rockpool Roadshow comes to town.
The public will be able to view and even interact with various species of crab, starfish, sea anenomes, shellfish and even sharks. Younger visitors will also be entertained, as there are diving suit exhibitions, face painting, along with Charlie the Clownfish.
This brief visit aims to educate and raise awareness of marine awareness.
Deep Sea World‘s Paul Francis stated, “We’re hoping the roadshow will give people – both young and old – a better opportunity to understand the creatures of the ocean.”
“If they can experience sea life close up and maybe even touch it, it immediately becomes much more real than just reading about it in a book.By bringing a slice of the seaside to the store we’re hoping to inspire more people to find out about the seas around our shores.”he added.
The exhibition runs from the 4th November to the 8h of November from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m.
