Climate Action

At Birch Aquarium we believe that the choices we make together can have a profound impact on the future of our ocean planet. To protect ocean animals, we need to protect their habitats and the ocean ecosystem, which also protects us and our community from the effects of climate change which range from habitat loss for plants and animals to human health impacts, wildfires and extreme weather conditions.
