Early Adopters and Pilot Projects

In order to prove concept and gain momentum, we’re starting with early adopters that have an inherent motivation to address our shared problem. UPSTREAM is working with the Aquarium Conservation Partnership (ACP) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium to help identify U.S. aquariums to become our first pilots. We are co-organizing a webinar for Q1 2019 to pitch facilities managers at targeted aquariums.

Aquariums can be throw-away-free

The Aquarium Conservation Partnership (ACP) represents Monterey Bay Aquarium and 21 additional AZA-accredited aquariums in the U.S. who are taking action together to advance ocean and freshwater conservation. Together, they welcome over 40 million visitors each year.

Established in 1984, the Monterey Bay Aquarium attracts over 2 million visitors each year and has consistently been ranked as one the top aquariums in the U.S.  The aquarium is recognized  leader in conservation and science.

Beyond aquariums, we are seeking to work with zoos, museums, sports stadiums and even airports and airlines.
