Bring 3 For the Sea:
“By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish”
To prevent this prediction from coming true, AQWA has teamed up with Containers for Change and we are asking every visitor to bring 3 plastic bottles with them to AQWA. Instead of ending up in the ocean, your plastic will help protect endangered marine turtles with funds from eligible containers given directly to the AQWA foundation.
Established nearly two decades ago, the AQWA Foundation is not-for-profit and funds the care, rehabilitation and release of sick and injured turtles at AQWA's Turtle Pool. We are a registered charity with ACNC, hold DGR status and have a registered scheme ID with Containers for Change (C10321117).
*rescue turtles are often in our care, though this is not guaranteed. No turtles at the moment? That's great! It means no sick or injured turtles are requiring our help. We still have a resident loggerhead turtle to meet in the Shipwreck Coast tunnel and tonnes of turtle facts to discover.
