All of our programs, initiatives, and projects at Aquarium of the Bay relate to at least one, and usually many, of the following issues: climate change, sustainable seafood, marine protected areas, marine debris and plastic pollution, and watershed health.
Every year, Aquarium of the Bay hosts multiple beach and shoreline cleanups, including events on Earth Day, World Ocean Day, and California Coastal Cleanup Day. These events engage hundreds of amazing volunteers every year, who help pick up thousands of cigarette butts, disposable plastic food containers, plastic bags, and other trash.
