Blue Team

To make sustainability an organization-wide priority while creating a culture of environmental awareness, the Aquarium has developed the Blue Team.

This team of staff from all departments meets regularly to discuss and promote environmental initiatives while motivating other employees. They work together to develop programs, policies, and procedures that help the Aquarium meet its sustainability targets while monitoring its operations to find room for improvement on an ongoing basis.

*Be sure to check our site regularly for information on new sustainability initiatives.
