Vote for our awesome Ocean Discovery Rangers to be the Tourism Superstars of 2022!

We are delighted that our Ocean Discovery Rangers are finalists in Visit England’s Tourism Superstar Awards! The award celebrates those in the industry who go the extra mile to ensure tourists in England have an amazing and unforgettable visitor experience.

Our passionate team of Ocean Discovery Rangers, based in our Aquarium, have made it to the finals due to their hard work and dedication ensuring visitors have a truly unique experience, and leave inspired by the immersive exhibits and our ground-breaking conservation work.

They have made it to the finals due to going above and beyond during the pandemic. They launched and delivered virtual Aquarium tours as a way for families to stay connected with each other, kids to still have fun birthday parties with their friends, and communities to come together and enjoy an exclusive behind the scenes tour. They also created a weekly schedule of Facebook lives, relaxation films, toddler craft sessions and live lessons! They reached a global audience, helping to build marine conservation knowledge, connect people and provide wellness benefits during a time that no one could leave their homes.

If you haven’t had the chance to visit our Aquarium and meet our fabulous Rangers, then check out the video below to find out why they should win this award. We would really appreciate it if you took a minute to vote for us! Tell your friends, family and everyone you know! Get your votes in before midnight on March 22nd.

Thanks to Visit England and The Mirror for running this competition to recognise the dedication and passion of those working in the tourism industry. Good luck to all the other great finalists!
