Education

The Aquarium’s education programs are
designed to foster connections between people and the ocean and to advance
learning for a broad range of students of all ages and backgrounds. The
Aquarium's education department teaches over fifty science programs that exceed
California mandated science K-12 standards, complementing and reinforcing what
students learn in their regular classrooms, and exposing them to a unique,
hands-on learning experience. The Aquarium also serves students from
underserved schools through the scholarship program. Information about
educational programs can be found here:
http://www.aquariumofpacific.org/education.

Population(s) Served

The Aquarium seeks to inform and inspire visitors,
staff, and the local and global community regarding conservation. The Aquarium
conducts conservation programs both on and offsite, which include an abalone
cultivation and outreach program (in partnership with NOAA's National Marine
Fisheries Service), and a Guam Kingfisher breeding and awareness program.Aquarium staff implement sustainable practices throughout the facility and conduct local restoration and neighborhood pollution prevention projects. More information on the Aquarium’s conservation initiatives can be found here: http://www.aquariumofpacific.org/conservation/

Population(s) Served

The Aquarium's husbandry department oversees the care, feeding, and life support systems needed to support over 12,000 animals representing over 700 species in more than 50 exhibits, including several touch tank experiences. Sea lions, sea otters, sharks, rays, diving birds, sea jellies, corals, sea dragons, turtles, and fish of all types from temperate to tropical species are on display. Caretaking includes feeding of the highest quality sustainable seafood available, monitoring water quality and all life support systems, medical exams and routine procedures, and providing proper exhibit and behind-the-scenes space to the animals.
