On your mark, get set, Go Blue this June!

by Audrey Lee

Every 8 June, RWS celebrates World Oceans Day. This year, the message at RWS is ‘Go Blue With Us’ and to bring across this message of ocean conservation to the public, there is a month-long programme at S.E.A. Aquarium.

To rev things up a little, we organised a Go Blue race, a multi-station race to the finish, where participants had to complete tasks that are fun and that also helps convey marine conservation messages. More than 300 secondary and tertiary students took part in this inaugural event.

Here are some highlights.

The band, One Heartbeat got things off to a sizzling start with their samba-inspired music and instruments made out of recycled household items. In the background is the giant inflatable version of Bluub, RWS’s conservation mascot.
