At the S.E.A. Aquarium, celebrate World Oceans Day with the Ocean Fest from 25th May to 24th June. Over the month, the aquarium will raise awareness for ocean conservation through a marketplace showcasing ocean-friendly products, immersive art installations, underwater performances, upcycling workshops and educational challenges. Experience guilt free shopping as you purchase items from over 10 ecofriendly booths each weekend, furnishing your home with items such as upcycled LED lamps, to health and wellness in the form of organic beauty products.
In an art installation titled “Life in Plastic”, guests can also experience what it might be like to be a small animal entangled in marine debris, and they weave their way through a maze of plastic bottles, fishing nets and other marine litter, and become more aware of how plastic pollution could completely destroy an otherwise healthy ocean habitat. For younger visitors, get set to put on those detective caps as they head on down to the Ocean Lab and investigate the string of gruesome crimes that’ve led to the harm of marine life – suspects include plastic trash found in the stomachs of animals to tiny microbeads. Serve out justice and bring to light the culprits behind the deaths of innocent sharks and albatrosses, by simply rejecting the use of plastic straws!
In addition, take a break and relax your mind as you gather around and enjoy the all new underwater show titled “Harmony’s Message”, as guests learn how to keep the oceans and marine life healthy, while the Guardians of the S.E.A.A. will lead interested volunteers in upcycling workshops, and even get a chance to meet turtle specialist Mark Hamann to learn how technology can advance conservation efforts.
Over at Adventure Cove Waterpark, get ready for the Splash Bash, happening from 26th May to 1st July across weekends and public holidays.
