We have conducted in-depth research within our centre of Ocean excellence – the National Marine Aquarium – proving the benefits of blue space to our wellbeing. This confirmed what we have always known about the Ocean…
We feel strongly that water is medicine. Our team sees the effects first-hand on individuals every time we take someone on a boat, to the beach, or to sit quietly at the huge viewing window in our Aquarium.
We are pleased to be working with a UK-based Blue Mind practitioner to attempt something that has never been done in an Aquarium before. We will be creating the first ever Blue Mind exhibit, as well as a Blue Mind trail and other activities.
How does this help the Ocean?
The ethos of the Blue Mind is something that all at the Ocean Conservation Trust relate to immensely. The Ocean can be calming and soothing to many. Using the Ocean to help with wellbeing and mindfulness will engage people into loving the Ocean and caring for it even more.
Watch this space!
