We're writing today with the best news! Actually, we have multiple pieces of good news to share with you. 

First, we would like to introduce you to our very first sponsor, The Image Salon. 
The Back to the Sea Society is extremely grateful for the recent donation from The Image Salon, a post-production service company for photographers. Their sponsorship is going towards our Touch Tank Days, an events series we'll be starting in the next few weeks (read about it below).

We created the Touch Tank Days as a proof of concept, a way to obtain community feedback for the catch-and-release aquarium project. By supporting this initiative, The Image Salon is directly contributing to the proposed Back to the Sea Aquarium and demonstrating that they believe in the idea and support its mission.  

They are also leading the way - a second sponsor has joined!

In order to make the Touch Tank Days a reality, Eyes On Optometry Group joined as a co-sponsor for this event. Eyes on Optometry is a a group of fashion opticals and optometry clinics with six locations in the Halifax area. Thanks to their support, we have the necessary funds to make the Touch Tank Days happen! 
Introducing the F(l)ounders Circle

Not only are these supporters our first sponsors, they are also the first to be honoured as part of the F(l)ounders Circle. This group of special donors will forever be recognized as the lead supporters who have helped our organization get off the ground. 
Thank you The Image Salon and Eyes on Optometry Group!

So what are these Touch Tank Days?

Our very first event series! We'll be popping up all over the Halifax Regional Municipality with some friendly invertebrates and we invite you to come get your hands wet. Learn about sea stars, urchins, crabs and more with our live animal displays and other educational games. 

Our home base is in Fisherman's Cove located in Eastern Passage. Find us at 25 1/2 Government Wharf Road, a building generously provided by Greg and Scott Sheffer. That's where a majority of our Touch Tank Days will be happening. 

Thank you to Greg and Scott for their support and the work they have put into the building to make it touch-tank-ready!
