In celebration of World Oceans Day this year, Aquaria KLCC is inviting the public to a family-friendly campaign that showcases the conservation efforts in protecting the blue oceans with our green actions.
The oceans affect our lives more than most people think. In order to ensure the health and safety of both the oceans and our lives, it is vital that we take the responsibility to care for the oceans.
One of the biggest threats to marine animals is being entangled or stranded in nets. At Aquaria KLCC, we have one green turtle and two Olive Ridley turtles that are endangered species. We have also run conservation programme such as ‘TURTLES CAN FLY’. Our role is to educate the public on the threats that these endangered species face.
Although most are not in danger of extinction, seahorses face a few threats that could potentially endanger them; incidental capture, unregulated harvest, habitat loss and use as traditional medicine. At Aquaria KLCC, we educate the public on the biology of seahorses through a learning workshop at Station Aquarius.
Shark fin soup is an expensive and luxurious delicacy around the world and prized for its taste. To meet the growing demand for shark fin soup, sharks are being harvested to near extinction. The ‘SAVE OUR FINS’ programme at Aquaria KLCC aims to educate the public on the importance of saving sharks to keep the marine ecosystem in ecological balance. It is also a call of urgency toward the public to say ‘NO TO SHARK FIN SOUP’.
Starting from 2nd June until 8th June 2016, Aquaria KLCC has planned a series of activities to educate the public on the importance of World Oceans Day and it will be taking place at Grouper Hall, Aquaria KLCC. During this conservation campaign, visitors will only have to purchase the admission ticket to Aquaria KLCC and join in the exciting activities for FREE.
On-ground activities include ‘Drop Your Answer’ and ‘Express Yourself on a Note’ which are aimed to create the awareness on this World Oceans Day. Provided with the promise card, the ‘Express Yourself on a Note’ activity gives the opportunity for visitors to pen their own World Oceans Day message creatively and share it out loud. Apart from these activities, visitors are welcomed to make themselves their own little turtle and build their turtle sculpture by using those unused or recycled materials.
We need to listen and stop destroying the oceans and their inhabitants before it is too late. Together we have the power to change things not just in the ocean fight, but in all animal rights!
