Ocean Conservation: The Very Heart of What We Do
Our dry land experience includes tailored verbiage designed just for younger guests. Making conservation efforts understandable, relatable, and more importantly easy for them to start making a difference! Plastic pollution is one of the areas we focus on the most. We also include shark education to increase awareness of these important apex predators. We’ve discovered kids actually listen to mermaids! We work directly with aquarium education and conservation teams to incorporate specific facility messaging into the event. We also attend conservation workshops and conferences, like AZA , to better train our team in relaying conservation messaging.
Our conservation messages reach even more guests through PR and media coverage. Visit our Media page here!
Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE
WW Mermaids are proud to be working with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE (Saving Animals From Extinction) Shark and Ray division.
We love diving with our shark friends, and hope we can spread the word about how important sharks are for our oceans.
The SAFE shark and rays program goal is to enable evidence-based support for conservation action, engage action among key public and stakeholder groups, support science-based shark conservation communication, and create opportunities for partners to provide direct, impactful, and collaborative support for the conservation of this taxa.
