Aquatic Academy

June 30, 2014

The Aquarium of the Pacific regularly hosts Aquatic Academy sessions in the spring and fall of each year, providing an opportunity for members of the community to learn more about ocean and environmental issues. The next course will be announced in coming weeks.

In a series of three or four evening classes, attendees hear presentations and panel discussions from scientists and other experts, getting in-depth information about pressing environmental topics and the most current data and interpretation from the speakers.

The Aquarium fosters dialogue on complex issues related to the ocean and environment through its Aquatic Academy. These courses bring together experts in science, business, conservation, policy, and academics to share their knowledge and experiences with attendees.
