Leading by example
We're always looking for ways to protect the environment.
We have some great initiatives here at the aquarium that underpin our commitment to sustainability.
As a business we're aiming to embed sustainable practices across all areas of operations.
Did you know since 2009 we have saved approximately 72,000 kg of leftover lettuce (organic waste) from our dugongs from going to landfill and generated about 18,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy? This equates to the electricity used to watch a flat screen TV non-stop for 11.6 years!
Pig's daily food scraps are also recycled in another way. Through overnight compositing, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium takes the food scraps from the two dugongs and turns it into usable rich soil!
Boardwalk Cafe in the main foyer area of SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium now serves Marine Stewardship Council certified Alaskan Pollock and pole and line caught Tuna. This means that these are sustainable species, and have been caught in a sustainable method. Learn about how you can buy sustainable seafood.
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is also proud to be aligned with What's the Catch? with Matthew Evans on SBS ONE which discovers the shocking truth about Australia's seafood and reveals what we should be eating and why.
