The Ocean is In Our Hands!
The NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is proud to have joined aquariums across the country to launch the In Our Hands campaign.
The campaign's initiative is to remind everyone to reduce single-use plastic and choose alternatives instead.
We're walking the walk too - replacing plastic straws with paper straws in our snack bars and adding water bottle refilling stations next to our water fountains.
In 2020 we plan to remove plastic water bottles at our drink vending machines!
The future of the ocean and lakes and rivers is In Our Hands!
You can help and do your part!
