We are Shawn and Kathy Hiester, and we are the founders of the St. Augustine Aquarium. Our goal is to improve our community's knowledge and understanding of the marine environment in order to raise awareness of the critical threats to our ocean and reef ecosystems. Also, we hope to provide a home for rescued marine animals such as sea turtles through our established partnerships with local research centers and other area rescue organizations.
The money will be used for the acquisition of marine species including sand tiger, bonnet head and black nose sharks as well as octopus, barracuda, eels, grouper, rays and a host of Florida reef fish. Also in support of our Conservation Through Education mission.
Project Showcase Proposal
We will bring a sample of the aquarium experience to One Spark. By introducing attendees to real, live Florida reef fish and invertebrates through an observation aquarium and a hands-on experience, we hope to build excitement for all of the experiences and activities that we plan to offer at the St. Augustine Aquarium. Our knowledgeable staff will provide information on the critical environmental issues facing the marine ecosystem and provide examples of how we can all join together to address them. We will also showcase a selection of really cool shark videos, shot right off the coast of Florida!
