Conservation and Research

School trips have never been so inspiring!

Conservation

Here at Skegness Aquarium we actively participate in and promote stewardship of the natural environment as part of our mission of conservation. Our efforts combine scientific research and animal rescue, rehabilitation and release programmes that give much needed support to animals in distress or imminent danger, and ecosystems that are faced with both natural and man-made threats. These efforts include managing and learning about our own Lincolnshire coastline, with a dedicated programme of events incorporating our interactive wet lab experiences which form the basis of our educational visits in Skegness Aquarium.

Research

Here at the aquarium, we continuously contribute to field studies, both assessing and advancing the health of our local ecosystems, while helping to educate the public on the critical conservation issues facing our local and international marine life, through workshops, exhibits and interactive experiences within the aquarium.

We also work to implement important breeding programmes and observational studies of those animals and fish within our care, documenting and reporting the results where appropriate and using our data to create informative workshops for our educational visits.

Energy Consumption

Our business is passionate about the environment! We have taken steps to reduce our energy consumption, lowering our carbon emissions for our loved local community. As a business we have invested in LED lights. This will make a huge difference to the environment and this is just the start of our sustainable journey.

To help us invest in these energy saving measures we had support from Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire. Through this we received a grant of £4,841.55 to enable us to make these fantastic changes.

The £8.5 million Smart Energy programme has been part funded by the European Regional Development fund. This is enabling small to medium businesses across the Greater Lincolnshire area invest in energy saving technology.
