This sea slug was made by James.

Q: Why did you decide to make this sea slug?

A: I chose to make this sea slug, because I liked that it looked just like a leaf.

Q: Did you learn something about sea slugs you hadn’t know before when you came
to the workshop?

A: Yes, I learned about their slime being used as a defense. I did not know this before I came to the workshop.

Q: What is your favorite sea creature (besides sea slugs, of course)?

A: Sharks, specifically great white sharks, are my favorite sea creature.

Q: Why do you care about the oceans?

A: Without the oceans, we would not have fish to eat. Plus, the rest of the ecosystem would fall apart.

Q: Do you have any advice about how we can protect the oceans?

A: People need to make sure they clean up their trash, and recycle as much as possible.

Q: Is there anything else you would like people to know about sea slugs or the
ocean in general?

A: Sea slugs are more than just slugs on the bottom of the ocean. They can use their slime as poison as a defense, and they have interesting camouflage. Coral reefs in the ocean, are not only a place for sea slugs, but a lot of other life forms in the ocean.

This sea slug was chosen by Carol. She liked it because it reminded her of one of her favorite real sea slugs, the Elysia Chlorotica, and she thought it was PERFECT for St. Patrick’s Day!
