Water we want? Filtration Now!

Even if you can't come #occupyPolarBears with us, you can still make a difference for 99% of wildlife by conserving water at home!

Here are some tips, and you can find more here:
• Grab a wrench and fix that leaky faucet. It's simple, inexpensive, and you can save 140 gallons a week. (This is a no-brainer! Of course, we don't have teeth, but we're pretty sure it's a no-brainer!)

• Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you'll save up to 150 gallons per month. (We embrace that fishy smell, so we don't really understand your need to shower so much anyway!)

• When cleaning out fish tanks, give the nutrient-rich water to your plants. (we especially love this tip, since most of our exhibit water was being dumped! The new filtration system will save 7 million gallons of water every year!)

Yours in solidarity,

  1. No. 3 is especially good. I'll be sure to pass on to domestic owners of fish I may perchance across - work into conversations on water conservation. Or zoo keepers.
