GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainable Seminar Series: Sustainability at Shedd Aquarium

Title:
Sustainable Seminar Series: Sustainability at Shedd Aquarium

Abstract:
Presented by Aislinn Gauchay on November 19, 2015 - Manager of Great Lakes and Sustainability at Shedd Aquarium

As an aquarium, Shedd cares about water. Both the health of our 32,000 animals and operations as a world class cultural institution depend upon water and it is a key focus area for the conservation and sustainability initiatives critical to Shedd's mission. With 2 million guests annually, over 20,000 member households, annual media impressions in the tens of millions, and a professional community that extends overseas, Shedd has utilized its powerful, trusted voice to inspire and instruct on water conservation efforts. Shedd's achievements in water conservation have established the aquarium as a sustainability thought-leader and trendsetter within the zoo, aquarium, and museum community in Chicagoland and beyond.

In this webinar, we will discuss Shedd's water stewardship and conservation initiatives, at Shedd and beyond. From active stewardship of the Great Lakes through community action to restore local ecosystems, to water conservation initiates resulting in a 49% reduction in new water use onsite, to culinary conservation through sustainable seafood, you'll learn how Shedd walks the talk, creatively conserving water resources and supporting healthy waters worldwide.
