Back in the day when they were still young pups, there will have been many men and women reading this now who had an aquarium in their bedrooms. They had a deep fascination in aquatic life and the kaleidoscopic colors their small aquarium produced. And should they have gone on to have families of their own, they may have ventured to take their young kids every once in a while to visit the city’s local aquarium.
But sad to see how quickly many people may have forgotten the true values of having an aquarium in the first instance. And perhaps they were never entirely aware of these. It may have been understandable at the time, but today there is simply no excuse. Interestingly and ironically, it seems to be the case that it is mostly the educated youngsters who are more aware of the plight of their aquatic resources, whether in the lakes or far out at sea.
For them to be setting up an aquarium in their bedrooms has more purpose. If no such community-based aquarium exists in your city, then every effort should be made to create one. City and town authorities, as well as private enterprise, should have no qualms about this value-based effort. Because there are enough resources in place to support this system. If it is based in Denver, Colorado, then local curators and marine biologists will have the benefit of their closely located aquarium supplies denver network.
If it is located on the East Coast, or along the West Coast, sure enough, there will be marine resource centers located across these coastlines. Back in Denver, every encouragement still needs to be given to encourage both locals and their visits to preserve their lakes and rivers.
