Baltic Sea Protection Day in the NMFRI Gdynia Aquarium

It is a special day for all the museums of the Baltic region. We live at the exceptional sea, from which we draw benefits every day. It is worthwhile to remind ourselves about the values of the youngest and sweetest of all the seas of in the world. On this occasion, on the 22nd of March 2015, the Gdynia Aquarium joined forces with representatives of the Polish local museums.

To promote the BalticMuseums electronic guides as well as Baltic nature, the entrance to the Gdynia Aquarium was decorated with the photo exhibition from underwater. For modern mobile devices’ users, additional pieces of audio-knowledge was linked to the QR codes on the posters. At 10:00 a.m. the Cinema Room was already filled with students, eager to learn about wide-aimed promotion of the Baltic nature. First point of the program was sharing the experience of the fruits of the BalticMuseums 2.0 Plus project. Every next hour, lectures were given by the admirers of the Baltic Sea. The scientists, archeologists, travelers and divers told us about their knowledge and experience and showed what is hidden at the Baltic very bottom. The visitors could also take part in open laboratories and educational games, see demonstration of diving equipment and even take a close look at the workshop of an old-time seal-hunter. Those who felt brave enough could even become a bone marrow donor or take part in the first aid course. The event finished at 4 p.m. Until this time, over one thousand people joined us to celebrate the uniqueness of the Baltic Sea. During the event, the admission to the Gdynia Aquarium Education Center was free of charge.
