The Ocean Project team, including Wei Ying Wong, Alyssa Isakower, and Bill Mott, and including consultants Douglas Meyer and Deb Kerr, will be in Atlanta at the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ annual conference, September 13-17. We look forward to meeting with you!
In case you will be at AZA, here’s a brief summary of some of what we are involved with and hope to see you at:
  • Exhibit Hall Roundtable (Thursday, Sept 15, 12:15pm-1:45pm) – come learn more about our market research initiative, World Oceans Day, our growing network of ZAMs (zoos, aquariums and museums), and how you can get more involved.
