The Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS) is proud to announce that we are fundraising this year for The Rainforest Awareness Rescue Education Center - RAREC. 100% of monies raised by auctioning certain designated auction lots by GBAS will go towards this fund.
"This is such a great opportunity," said John Moyles GBAS Event Coordinator. "We, as a club, feel that is important to give back by supporting ‘boots on the ground’ conservation organizations. RAREC does great work with manatees and giant river otters."
The Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS) will hold its Spring Auction on Sunday March 10th, 2019 at the Starlite Club, W2091 County Rd JJ, Kaukauna, WI 54130.
Seller set up begins at 9:00 am and the bidding starts at 10:30. The event is free, open to the public, and everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be available on site.
GBAS is a non-profit educational organization whose purpose is to further the study of all forms of aquatic life, to promote interest, exchange ideas, and distribute information concerning the aquarium hobby, and to encourage the display of aquatic life. The auction supports this purpose by providing an outlet for area hobbyists to rehome the fish and corals they have propagated and/or to find varieties of corals and other aquatic life not readily available at area stores. New and used equipment will also be available as well as door prizes and raffles.
GBAS maintains several public aquariums, including those at the Brown County Central Library. Club meetings are held each month at 1000 Islands Environmental Center in Kaukauna.
RAREC works to protect the endangered wildlife and the environment of the Peruvian Amazon -- the world's most vital natural wonder., to reach out to the communities, so they can be allies in conservation and to educate about the wildlife, the ecosystems, and the people of the majestic, diverse, and threatened Amazon Rainforest.
