On Saturday, November 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Aquarium of the Pacific will host the eleventh annual National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) interactive event. The public can talk with real-life marine biologists and oceanographers while they learn about ocean habitat conservation, weather warnings, safe and sustainable seafood, aquaculture, ocean exploration, marine mammal strandings, and endangered species.
Learn more about NOAA and its efforts to protect the ocean, predict changes in the atmosphere, provide information about climate change, and impact everyday lives of people through science, service, and stewardship at the Aquarium during NOAA Day. In addition, representatives from NOAA’s National Weather Service and the Office of Aquaculture will use the state-of-the-art technology NOAA Science on a Sphere®, located in the Aquarium’s Ocean Science Center to visually highlight weather modeling, hurricanes, and seafood farming.
Included with general admission: $29.95 adult (12+), $26.95 senior (62+), $17.95 child (3-11), and free for children under age three and Aquarium members.
