Guardians of the S.E.A.A. is the conservation group of S.E.A. Aquarium. We will take greater strides in supporting conservation research, education and public engagement efforts by bringing together a community of like-minded people and organisations collaborating with S.E.A. Aquarium to protect the marine environment.

Guardians of the S.E.A.A. was previously known as S.E.A. Aquarium Society when first launched on 8 June 2017, in celebration of World Oceans Day. 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.

The group will support researchers and scientists dedicated to increasing understanding of the ocean. It will also lead and support local initiatives and campaigns that will impact and improve ocean health.
