    New England Aquarium Fossil Fuel Divestment Petition

    830 signatures

    The New England Aquarium is a vital institution in our community that works to educate the public about climate change and its impacts. As patrons of the New England Aquarium, we are proud of its strong commitment to combating climate change. We encourage the aquarium to take the next step as a role model by becoming the first aquarium in the world to divest from fossil fuels

    The fossil fuel divestment movement has grown rapidly over the last five years to undermine the destructive influence of the fossil fuel industry, which disproportionately burdens the health, livelihoods, and lifespans of people of color and low-income people. Through divesting, the aquarium will further its mission to support the community, to act as a leader, and to create a sustainable blue planet for all people and marine wildlife.

    By signing this petition, I support the New England Aquarium’s Board of Trustees in divesting from the fossil fuel industry so that the aquarium can continue to be a role model for other local institutions that are committed to serving the public and the environment.
