You Keep the Aquarium Going Strong

The Aquarium’s unprecedented second closure this month, coupled with our previous 18-week closure in the spring, has severely impacted our revenue. To recover from the financial loss, we launched the Mission Forward Fund to support our general operations and organizational sustainability. 

Your donation to the Mission Forward Fund will help provide care for our nearly 20,000 animals, support scientific research focused on the ocean’s challenges, inspire conservation, and educate individuals of all ages through virtual programs.

We can’t lose sight of our mission to protect the blue planet. Support our Mission Forward Fund with your donation today.
