March 9, 2010. You may have spotted the Aquarium’s vibrant yellow submarine swimming through Southern California freeways, and this is thanks to the American Honda Motor Company. For years the Aquarium’s founding sponsor Honda has given the Aquarium full use of a Honda Civic GX Natural Gas Vehicle and an Odyssey minivan wrapped in submarine graphics. Both vehicles are used often by Aquarium staff for outreach activities, transporting exotic animals, and other mission-related expeditions. While the vehicles have previously been made available through a no-cost lease, this year Honda has donated both vehicles outright to the Aquarium.
“The Aquarium of the Pacific has been extremely appreciative of Honda’s ongoing partnership, and this donation is just one more way that Honda has shown its continued commitment to the Aquarium,” said Aquarium Vice President of Development Nancy Weintraub.
