S.E.A. Aquarium inspires marine conservation at SINDA’s Back to School Festival

On 26 November 2016, the Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) welcomed 1,200 students from lower income families at their Back-To-School-Festival, where school kits for the upcoming academic year were given out.

S.E.A. Aquarium was part of this meaningful event where our Community Outreach Team introduced some of our marine life and shared important messages of marine conservation with the community.
