The Waikiki Aquarium in Honolulu, Hawaii hosted Earth month celebrations on April 10, 2010. Free admission to drew a long line at the 9AM opening. Special interactive educational displays were popular with the keiki. Scientists, educators and volunteers were on hand to talk about sea life, invasive species, conservation and habitats. The messages were conveyed with coloring books, ring toss games and learning puzzles. A seahorse release was a highlight for many attendees.
In addition to the Earth month special events, we visited the ongoing exhibits including Hawaiian monk seal, puffer fish, anemones, and jellyfish. Click on the image below to view this episode of “Where Are You Today?”

On Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm local time, join in support of your planet and shut off your lights.
Earth Hour is a global initiative to highlight our responsibility to our planet and the collective power of our citizens. We are encouraged to shut off our lights for one hour on March 27, 2010 in a stand against climate change. According to the Earth Hour website, we will be joining 116 countries and over 1500 cities, towns and municipalities who have already signed up to take part in the lights out campaign.
This movement began in Sydney, Australia in 2007 as the lights were shut off in the harbor around the Sydney Opera House. Over the last 3 years, the movement has grown to a worldwide event. Landmarks from the Eiffel Tower to the Sphinx in Egypt to the Las Vegas Strip will go dark for 60 minutes.
