Thank you for attending Pay What You Want Day and supporting our conservation efforts. Continuing to make a difference is simpler—and more rewarding—than you might think.

Volunteers like Mary Sidlowski have discovered the satisfaction of taking action and witnessing its positive effects. Through cleanups, plantings and other conservation events, Mary and the Aquarium Conservation Team have planted the seeds for change—literally. You can be a part of that.

There are countless opportunities for you to protect the planet at home as well. Your plate is a good place to start. The food we eat greatly affects the environment, and sustainable eating can effectively minimize your impact.

Finally, ensure a brighter future for generations to come by reducing your carbon footprint. Consider trying a more eco-friendly commute, turn the lights off when they’re not in use and replace incandescent lamps with fluorescent bulbs.
