Sandi Schaefer-Padgett, a senior aquarist for The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, uses a pole to feed the sand tiger sharks.

For Endangered Species Day, The Maritime Aquarium education staff will be on-site to identify endangered and vulnerable species that live at the Aquarium.

Guests will have the opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt to find these species including the green sea turtle, spotted turtle, sand tiger shark, and horseshoe crab.

Other activities will demonstrate the challenges that endangered species face in the wild, and ways the public can get involved in conservation efforts.

Activities are included with the purchase of admission on Friday, May 19.
