More about events at Sydney Aquarium

Claudette Rechtorik and Amy Wilkes have discussed a few ideas we can incorporate here at the Aquarium for Sea Week. The main concept is to create a Sustainability Pledge Wall. Claudette has arranged to get a net and we are going to string it up in our Dugong area and encourage people to pin pledges to the net about what they will do this year to improve their sustainability.

We will be handing out a Brochure at the start of the Aquarium explaining what its all about and will be arranging to incorporate additional information in talks throughout the aquarium to educate people a bit more about some of the issues facing our oceans and to give them ideas on what they can pledge. Hopefully the best Pledges can be combined to form an online “heros wall” or something similar.

We will also be encouraging the sale of Keep Cups, with a free coffee on purchase, and reusable water bottles in the cafes of the aquarium, as a active pledge idea.


Claudette has also arranged for, eminent dugong scientist, Helene Marsh, to do a talk that week too (more info and booking for it can be found on the SLCF website).


Finally we are going to organize a staff “nude lunch” day. Were we will avoid lunch where there is any waste created.
