Carlsbad Local Conservation
SEA LIFE Aquarium at LEGOLAND California Resort is a Conservation Partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program. This program recommends which seafood to buy or avoid. Recommendations are based on which item is fished or farmed in a way with less environmental impact. This program helps you to learn the stories behind your seafood. You can pick up a Seafood Watch guide at the aquarium or download the app for free. Learn more about this program at http://www.seafoodwatch.org/.
SEA LIFE has participated in the Southern California Aquarium Collaborative for the past eight years. This is a joint project between Southern California aquariums and environmental organizations.
The group focuses on educating guests about environmental issues such as Marine Protected Areas and Climate Change. Underwater Parks Day, held every January, teaches guests about dedicated protected areas right off of our coast.
SEA LIFE Aquarium is committed to cleaning up our local beaches. The aquarium has adopted the coastline around Lifeguard Tower 30 in Carlsbad. Last year, over 250 volunteers helped pick up 325 pounds of trash and 50 pounds of recycling from this area. We will continue to host beach cleanups.
