A particular emphasis on the educational programs will be life in Mexico's Gulf of California. Marine experts from the gulf join a World Wildlife Fund conservationist who focuses on the region in sharing knowledge with aquarium visitors. A bilingual film on the region will be shown in Marine Life Theater.
Ways to help local marine habitat will also be presented.
At 1:45 p.m. Sunday, the aquarium will present its annual Hispanic Heritage Award to one of the gulf's marine experts, Antonio Resendiz, who has sought to protect sea turtles in the region.
