EVENTS and activities have been given the seal of approval this weekend as Tynemouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium celebrates the birthdays of two seals.
Harbour seals Sofus and Marvolo are both six this month and, to mark the occasion, their keepers have put together a programme of activities on July 7 and 8.
At noon on Saturday a birthday fish-cake will be presented to the seals.
Over the weekend there will be three seal talks daily and two daily seal feeds.
A series of fun seal facts have been posted up around the aquarium and there will also be a seal colouring station for youngsters and a quiz trail.
Sofus and Marvolo share their 650,000 litre outdoor home with two female harbour seals, Loffe and Selina.
