    The Seoul Metropolitan Facilities Management Corporation (CEO Oh Sung-gyu, www.sisul.or.kr) announced on December 22 that Seoul Children’s Grand Park will be operating two animal learning programs— “Mystery of Mammals in the Sea” and “Ape’s Great Expedition”—in January over the public school winter holidays.

    The programs, which target elementary-aged children, will be in operation from January 4 to 23, from Monday through Saturday, at the Tropical Animal Hall within the park.

    ‘Mystery of Mammals in the Sea’ is a half-day program that allows children to observe and learn about ocean mammals such as seals, sea lions, and more. The program is designed to stimulate the imagination of young participants by casting them as the “zookeepers” of the park as they go through the program.

    ‘Ape’s Great Expedition’, is a special half-day program that helps children learn about the characteristics of apes in celebration of the year 2016, the Year of the Ape. As part of the program, participants not only learn about the different kinds of primates, but also have a chance to prepare and feed some of the apes in the park.

    Upon completion of either program, participants will receive a certificate of completion and free souvenirs. Participation fees are KRW 10,000 per person per program. Anyone interested may apply on the website of Seoul Children’s Grand Park (www.sisul.or.kr). Registration begins on December 23 at 10:00 a.m. and slots are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Oh Sung-gyu, CEO of the Seoul Metropolitan Facilities Management Corporation commented on the programs saying, “Seoul Children’s Grand Park has continued to make attempts to provide children with new and enjoyable experiences such as the operation of the Hangeul Tayo Bus, the installment of Little Prince sculptures, the reopening Kids Auto Park, and other programs. In the future, the Seoul Metropolitan Facilities Management Corporation will continue to be dedicated to providing unique and valuable public services to the citizens of Seoul.”
