A spokesperson said, “Learn more about our resident animals with regularly scheduled encounters and feedings, or see how to hold your breath under water and take part in our Get Salty! breath holding competition.

“Our Junior Volunteer Programme will also be hosting a number of snack concessions, as they raise funds for an educational trip to Costa Rica, or dine overlooking Harrington Sound in Bermuda’s most exciting café, the Azu Beastro.

“There will also be a wide variety of educational displays throughout the property to celebrate our ocean, featuring both BZS and BAMZ programmes, as well as the Department of Conservation Services, the Marine Resources Section of the Department of Environmental Protection, BIOS, the Lionfish Task Force, the Sargasso Sea Alliance, the Ocean Support Foundation, Bermuda Ocean Explorers, Greenrock!, 5 Gyres, Blue Halo, Dolphin Quest, BUEI and the Marine Debris Task Force. Guests will be able to learn more about these important organisations and services first hand from people who work in the field.

“The event coincides with World Oceans Day, on June 8, in which hundreds of aquariums, zoos, museums, and conservation organisations around the world look to provide an opportunity to focus special attention on our personal connection to the sea. Our desire is to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in Bermuda’s existence and the increasingly critical need for each of us to help conserve its wonders and resources.”
