Seattle Aquarium

The Seattle Aquarium’s mission is "Inspiring Conservation of our Marine Environment" and our conservation programs focus on moving toward a future that embodies climate resilience, sustainable seas and clean waters. We engage with almost 1 million people each year on-site, along rivers and beaches, and in our communities. Proudly accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, we are recognized for our excellence in animal care and welfare.

Our passionate staff increases awareness and drives the change needed to preserve and protect our marine environment through a compelling exhibit experience; research and field conservation; policy and advocacy to advance science-informed decisions; conservation education programs for all people; community outreach to underserved populations; and more.
