Thomasville, GA -- March 15, 2012 --
It's typically a crowd pleaser when it pulls up to a school.
"What we are standing in front of is our newest idea, it is our mobile exhibit," said Cypress Rudloe, Executive Director of the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab.
Through a grant and other funding, the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, FL designed the Sea Mobile. It's purpose is to bring smaller Gulf sealife to students who may not be able to get down to Panacea.
"This is basically a mobile touch thank. It goes to different aquariams, different schools, different organizations," said Rudloe.
The Sea Mobile is great for kindergartners at Hand in Hand Primary School in Thomasville. The school used to take the trip to Panacea, but various factors stopped them from doing it anymore.
"With budget cuts and costs and also travel, the length of time for us to go, we just weren't able to make those trips again," said assistant principal Robin Shaver.
This sea mobile truly has something for everyone.
Spongy things, itty bitty crabs, and big ones too. The sea mobile is hoping to educate many more youngsters in south Georgia for years to come.
