Celebrate World Oceans Day with S.E.A. Aquarium’s Ocean Fest – The Noisy Ocean! (17 May – 30 June)
S.E.A. Aquarium’s Ocean Fest returns with the theme of “The Noisy Ocean”. Held in celebration of World Oceans Day on 8 June, this festival aims to raise awareness on ocean soundscapes and the negative impacts of sound pollution through immersive installations, musical performances, project showcases and more. Highlights include:
1. Celebration of Sound
On weekends and public holidays at 12pm and 2pm, guests can participate in a brand-new percussion showcase, called the “Celebration of Sound” in front of the iconic Open Ocean Habitat. This edu-taining live performance consists of an ensemble of upcycled materials turned into musical instruments, life-sized dancing puppets and an original score espousing the importance of the 3Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle.
2. Interactive audio-visual exhibits
Young learners can discover the natural rhapsody of sounds in the ocean through four immersive installations that illustrate the types of sounds and its importance to the ocean and marine ecosystem, as well as the effects of sound pollution on marine biodiversity.
B) Sound ReactiveTV: Activate the different sounds that marine animals make as they swim through the ocean.
D) Sound Box Blasting: Enter this box and experience up close what happens when underwater blasting and drilling takes place (Advisory guidelines on height, weight and/or health restrictions will be available to guests before entering).
Discover the unique characteristics of the aquarium’s largest and most iconic species – three manta rays – and how to protect these animals in an all-new talk held daily at 1pm at the Open Ocean Habitat. Guests can also meet S.E.A. Aquarium’s adorable line-up of manta ray and shark mascots at 12.30pm and 3pm daily.
Bringing ocean conservation outside the aquarium, families and young readers can learn more about the sounds of the ocean and how to take action against sound pollution through a series of talks and engagement sessions at various National Library Board branches from now until 30 June 2019.
