Aquarium of the Pacific “Our Watersheds” Exhibit


The American Chemistry Council’s Plastic Division provided financial resources and expertise to help the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, create a new exhibit, “Our Watershed: Pathway to the Pacific.” The exhibit includes a permanent marine debris education program aimed at reaching young people with the importance of recycling and proper disposal.

The hands-on exhibit brings to life the connection between human activity on land and the consequences for the oceans—in particular the link between land based litter and marine debris. Weekday mornings are reserved for school groups who learn about ways to reduce the human impact on the watershed and the oceans.
