Educational Resources Throughout June 

During World Ocean Month, the Aquarium will be releasing new virtual educational resources on its Facebook

“World Ocean Month reminds us just how essential the ocean is to our livelihood as it connects us all,” said Dr. Andrew Rossiter, Director of the Waikiki Aquarium. “There’s no better way to celebrate than to invite the community to learn about our oceans and Pacific marine life, and provide an opportunity to care for our local waters.” 

The Aquarium also invites the public to sign the 30×30 petition in support of the global movement to protect 30% of the plant’s lands, waters and ocean by 2030.
