SEA LIFE Blackpool Announce New Partnership
SEA LIFE Blackpool and Girlguiding North West England are excited to reveal that they have teamed up to launch a new ocean conservation badge.
The aim of the exclusive collaboration is to engage Girlguiding North West’s 37,000 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers with marine conservation and inspire them to protect the oceans and sea creatures that live within them.
SEA LIFE Blackpool’s head aquarist, Scott Blacker, is working closely with Girlguiding North West England to create an exciting and inspiring challenge pack covering key themes - what’s in our oceans and plant life, marine eco systems and food chains, the dangerous impact of pollution, climate change, and overfishing on sea animals, and what we can do to protect them.
Girlguiding North West England members aged between four and 18, will have the opportunity to earn the new badge when it launches in Spring 2024, by selecting and successfully completing two activities from each theme within the pack.
Scott Blacker, Head Aquarist at SEA LIFE Blackpool said; “SEA LIFE Blackpool is focused on protecting sea creatures, raising awareness of endangered species, and inspiring children and young people to safeguard our oceans for the future. We are incredibly excited and grateful to Girlguiding North West England for partnering with us to develop and create the very first SEA LIFE badge and we cannot wait to unveil it next year.”
Kelly Hunter, Executive Manager at Girlguiding North West England said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Sea Life Blackpool to launch our very first badge focused on protecting the ocean and sea creatures. We know that conservation, the environment, and taking action are significantly important to our members. This is a fantastic and unique opportunity for them to learn and take part in activities around conservation and have fun along the way!”
