One Voice: Aquarium Conservation Partners Take Action

In late 2014, leaders from the three Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited aquariums explored general interest among other aquarium leaders with regards to collaborating, especially around federal issues, and to advocate not just for funding, but for protection and management policies. They hired a consultant to test the idea with stakeholders. Results revealed that it would be considered a value-add on if aquariums came together as a new voice to take concerted actions on policy-related issues. And with that green light, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Shedd Aquarium and the National Aquarium moved ahead with the recommendation that they create a two-year pilot project called the Aquarium Conservation Partnership.
