SINGAPORE: The Marine Life Park at Resorts World Sentosa is reaching out to the young to promote conservation even before it opens at the end of the year.
It’s organising tours to its Marine Aquaculture & Research Centre in Lim Chu Kang.
The facility is the temporary home of the sea creatures that will call the Marine Life Park its home.
And students from NUS High School of Mathematics and Science are the first to check out how the centre is looking after its residents.
Chu Yao Quan said: "Before I came to this tour, I didn’t know there are so many conditions that have to be taken care of for the fishes."
Director of Conservation & Education of Marine Life Park, Biswajit Guha, said: "It’s really a self—contained world—class facility. And currently it’s being used as a quarantine area for animals that will eventually be at Marine Life Park. But what’s also very key is the systems that we have in place.
"Marine aquaculture and essentially maintaining fish in a managed situation has a lot of science behind it. And that is something which our experts and specialists, aquarists, life support specialists, veterinarians, have many years of expertise in."
