Obstacle Challenges

A  Find the Way Out    
Navigate your way out the maze to experience how marine life struggles to swim across the ocean filled with abandoned fishing nets and marine trash.

Break through the hurdles representing the harsh underwater world near the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch." 

 

C  Help the Corals

Go across the tires indicating the devastating impact to the corals caused by deep-sea trawling and learn the importance of marine conservation.

Acid rain is the result of pollution and soaring carbon emissions. Contaminated water falls into the ocean bringing adverse impacts to the aquatic ecosystem. Set off your exploration journey by climbing over the water slide and braving the rough sea.

 

E Save the Ocean Victims After a journey of twists and turns, head to the Animal Rescue Centre and save the marine life from danger.

 

F  Overfishing Danger
Overfishing causes drastic reduction on fish stocks, endangers the marine ecosystem.
