With the loss of visitors due to the COVID shutdown public aquariums are struggling to feed aquarium animals. Piscine Energetics, a Canadian based fish food manufacturer quickly noticed this need and launched the ‘Save Your Aquarium’ Campaign in June.
The campaign is a ‘buy one, give one’ initiative that aims to rally the public, including the 14.5 million households in North America that have an aquarium, to support the zoos and aquariums that have been seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Zoos and Aquariums welcome over 185 million visitors annually. We realized quickly that with an extreme loss of revenue and almost unchanging operating costs, our long-time partners are facing challenging budget cuts, and reduced resources while trying to maintain a healthy environment for their animals” said Nuri Fisher, President of Piscine Energetics Inc. “That’s when the idea for the campaign came to me. Why not make it easy for not only our community’s most avid hobbyists but anyone that has ever experienced the wonder of learning in these institutions, to support in the care of these animals.”
Through the Save Your Aquarium Campaign, people and organizations can buy a bucket of Piscine Energetics sustainably sourced fish food for their home or office aquarium, and Piscine Energetics will give a bucket to their institution of choice. People without access to fish tanks can still participate by purchasing a bucket of fish food which will result in both buckets being directed to the selected institution.
How it works:
- Visit www.saveyouraquarium.com
- Select your state or province and favorite institution
- Select the pellet size you need for your home or office fish tank or choose to give both buckets, or a partial bucket, to the aquarium of your choice
- Piscine Energetics will take care of the rest
