Resorts World Sentosa’s S.E.A. Aquarium Welcomes 10 Millionth Visitor

Resorts World Sentosa’s S.E.A. Aquarium Welcomes 10 Millionth Visitor
March 29, 2017

Just five years after opening, the S.E.A. Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa has welcomed its 10 millionth visitor.

The lucky 10 millionth visitor was Samuel Ang with his wife Claire Ang and daughter Beatrice, who will have received Annual Passes, a hamper and a personal meet-and-greet-session with the Aquarium’s mascot Mai the manta ray.

The aquarium is one of the largest in the world and home to more than 100,000 marine animals from across 800 species.

Explaining the popularity of the attraction, Jason Horkin, Senior Vice President of Attractions at Resorts World Sentosa, commented “with our diverse collection of aquatic species and large number of visitors entering the aquarium, S.E.A. Aquarium is in a unique position to connect the public closer to marine life through its immersive learning environment.

“We will continue to enhance the aquarium’s educational content, refresh our events and experiences, and diversify our animal collection to increase visitors’ knowledge on aquatic ecosystems, and inspire positive change towards protecting marine species.”

Over the years, S.E.A. Aquarium has created a series of public events and festivals that combine education and entertainment.

Its annual World Oceans Day event engages both visitors and staff through an exciting array of activities such as beach clean-ups, educational trails, sharing sessions by aquarists, recycling art displays and record-breaking pledges – all aimed at promoting sustainable living to keep the oceans healthy.

Dedicated to inspire conservation through education, S.E.A. Aquarium has developed educational programs to complement the local school curriculum, giving students opportunities to interact with marine animals and learn first-hand from marine life specialists. Taking learning beyond its blue realm, S.E.A. Aquarium has been conducting various community outreach events at Singapore’s heartlands to bring the message of marine conservation closer to the people. These events include interactive booths where residents can get a rare hands-on opportunity with marine life such as sea stars and sea cucumbers at touch pools, and craft stations where children can learn about the threats facing ocean life.
