The Cabrillo High School
Aquarium began as a partnership between a student, a teacher,
and a local physician/amateur aquarist who agreed to sponsor the
formers' science project -- The Warm Water Reef. This original partnership
soon blossomed into hundreds of partnerships among students, teachers,
district staff, and members of the business community - locally
and nationally. Thousands of visitors including those in weekly
guided tours from elementary students, have toured it's hands-on-learning
laboratory. It's students receive scholarships to continue their
studies in marine science and environmental studies. The program
has received the President of the United States' Environmental Youth
Award and the California School Boards Assoc. Golden Bell Award.
It was recognized on the nationally televised "A Pledge And A Promise
Environmental Education Awards" program as the most outstanding
Marine Science Education Program.
RAIN hosts the Cabrillo
High School Aquarium Website where you can take a virtual tour
