AUBURN HILLS — SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium — the 35,000-square-foot aquarium set to open in Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in early next year — announced a contest to select 12 Michigan children to join its Young Environmentalist panel.
The Young Environmentalists will serve as student ambassadors, and help educate the community about SEA LIFE’s local and global conservation efforts.
SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium wants local children, ages 8 to 12, passionate about the sea and its creatures to submit entries via Facebook to earn a spot on the Young Environmentalist panel.
“Our goal at SEA LIFE is to not only educate guests about the importance of conservation, but to actually inspire them to take an active role in the environmental protection mission,” says Hayley Townsend, general manager of SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium. “The Young Environmentalist panel will help us engage the support of the Michigan community through the passionate young people who will be the future protectors of our waters.”
Those selected will help spread the aquarium’s conservation message to the community, win a SEA LIFE Michigan Annual Pass, be one of the first to preview the new attraction before it opens to the public, and be invited to participate in special events throughout the year.
