The fourth week of April 2015 was “wet and wild” thanks to the University of New Haven Marine Biology Club, who sponsored a new Marine Biology-Themed event every day Monday through Sunday on the week of April 20.

Monday, the club brought in a Touch Tank to the Bartels programming space, featuring starfish, horse shoe crabs, hermit crabs, and other aquatic creatures. On Tuesday, the club was busy tie-dyeing T-Shirts under the German Club Pavilion. There was a line out the door, wrapping around the building on Wednesday as the club gave away free build-your-own sea critters in the Bartels Programming Space. On Thursday, the Bixler/Botwinik Quad was bustling with people, music and action due to the Marine Carnival. The carnival featured games and prizes, a mechanical bull shark, an inflatable basketball hoop challenge, traditional carnival foods including snow cones and cotton candy, and more.

The Marine Biology Club gave out fishy friends on the Bartels Quad Patio on Friday, where anyone interested could receive up to three goldfish, a decorated tank, and fish food to add a bit of aquatic charm to their dorm. Saturday, the club took to the Long Warf Beach for a strenuous, yet rewarding beach cleanup. To finish of Marine Week 2015, the club took members and non-members all the way to Gloucher, Massachusetts on an all-day whale watching trip, where they enjoyed a relaxing day of fun, and marine environmental appreciation.

Overall, the University of New Haven campus was extremely active this past week thanks to the Marine Biology Club, and their various sponsors.
