Ocean Fest: solve marine crimes, shop at eco-market, learn to upcycle, and more

In celebration of World Oceans Day, S.E.A. Aquarium will launch Ocean Fest! from 25 May to 24 June 2018. This month-long festival aims to raise awareness for ocean conservation through a marketplace showcasing ocean-friendly products, educational challenges, underwater performances, upcycling workshops, art installation and more.

Ocean Eco-market

Our first ocean eco-market features more than 10 eco-friendly booths manned by vendors such as World Wildlife Fund for Nature (Singapore), Superlative Foods (Singapore’s only certified organic snacks manufacturer) and ETL No.9 whose organic green formula promotes minimal and sustainable living. Check out the great collection of well-designed and reusable home products from upcycled LED lamps to organic, microplastic-free beauty products. Plus, take part in interactive games and activities to celebrate the ocean.

This eco-market is organised in partnership with Terra SG – a social enterprise that advocates individuals to make positive environmental change.

Time: 10am – 7pm, weekends only
open air walkway between Maritime Experiential Museum and S.E.A. Aquarium

Solve marine crimes at Ocean Lab

Assume the role of a crime scene investigator to solve the murders of several marine animals. This interactive zone will encourage kids to review evidence such as plastic trash found in the victims’ stomachs to find out what led to their demise.

The hands-on experience is designed to empower them to better understand the epidemic of plastic pollution, and to take simple actions such as rejecting the use of plastic straws.
