2023 marks the 42nd Anniversary of San Francisco based BayEcotarium’s non-profit mission of environmental advocacy, ocean conservation and climate resilience.
In the last four decades, our programs, exhibits, outreach and environmental policy work has impacted millions through our seven branches that include the Smithsonian Affiliated Aquarium of the Bay, Bay Institute, Bay Academy, Sustainable Seafood Alliance, Bay Model, Studio Aqua and EcoXpeditions.
The increasing carbon footprint in the world has rendered the planet in dissonance with nature. RESONANCE with nature is the existential need of our lifetimes and beyond. Music is the universal language that speaks to our hearts and resonates with our souls. The Climate Concert opening on December 6, 2023 at Dubai Opera in sync with UN CLIMATE SUMMIT COP28 at World Expo Dubai, is in support of Climate Literacy- the bedrock of Awareness to collective Action!
San Francisco is known for changing the world with movements that have shattered paradigms from the birth of United Nations 78 years ago to Silicon Valley tech revolution. It is time to birth a new UN – United Nature that nurtures and heals our Blue Marble. BE the movement!
