We Are Family: Just as we have families up here on land, ocean animals also have relatives that share common characteristics with them.  Come discover the connection between manatees and elephants, octopuses and oysters, or to celebrate our own Mote family member – founder Dr. Eugenie Clark (“The Shark Lady”) – on what would have been her 100th birthday!
