S.E.A. Aquarium Society is now Guardians of the S.E.A.A.

The conservation group of S.E.A. Aquarium has been renamed Guardians of the S.E.A.A.. Formerly known as S.E.A. Aquarium Society, the name change reflects our continued mission of educating the public on marine conservation. It also highlights the roles of individuals and communities in inspiring collective actions to safeguard the health of the oceans for future generations.

When S.E.A. Aquarium Society first rolled out earlier this year, the Bring Your Own (BYO) Schools Programme (a collaboration with Zero Waste SG) was one of our key initiatives. Now with Guardians of the S.E.A.A., we will continue to push ahead with the campaign. Just recently, we saw our first successful completion at Bukit Panjang Primary School.

Each time the student rejects a plastic disposable item such as straw, or brings his own container (BYO) instead of using a plastic disposable, he will receive a sticker from the canteen vendor. All students who completed their BYO cards received a certificate of achievement.

From 13 September to 10 October this year, 140 Primary 1 and 2 students have rejected the use of 1,849 plastic disposables, exceeding the target of 1,000 items per school. On 27 October 2017, these students were awarded a certificate of achievement at a special ceremony in school.

Mr Bucktha Seelan, Principal of Bukit Panjang Primary School, presenting the Certificate of Achievement to Stilton Tan of class 2C. Stilton was also awarded 4 tickets to S.E.A. Aquarium for coming up tops in this campaign by rejecting 10 plastic disposables.

The year-long BYO Schools Programme targets to reduce the total number of plastic disposables by 20,000 items. It will involve 4,000 students from 20 primary schools in Singapore, with Bukit Panjang Primary School being the first school to successfully complete the programme.
