Plus - Collect your recyclables and bring them to AQWA

We want there to be more fish in the ocean than plastic! To reduce plastic pollution and give waste plastic a new life, AQWA has teamed up with GreenBatch. As part of this positive step for change we are asking you to start collecting your recyclables – your glass, plastics and tetra packs, and bring them with you to AQWA. Instead of ending up in the ocean your plastic will support the ocean as funds from any eligible containers for change are given directly to the AQWA foundation.

Established nearly two decades ago the AQWA foundation cares for sick and injured turtle’s at the turtle pool.

Turtles are a keystone species for the ocean. This means that their survival is vital to the health of the ocean. Turtles encourage the growth of sea grass beds and ensure that there is room for all types of coral on a reef. This is why it is so important that sick and injured turtles , are cared for and then returned back to the wild so that they can continue their important role and so that we can learn more about them along the way. And you can help us do it!

Start collecting your recyclables today – and we’ll see you soon at AQWA!
