We're Making a Difference for the Ocean

The ocean sustains all life on Earth. From the air we breathe to the seafood we eat, our very survival depends on healthy seas. The Aquarium's Conservation & Science programs are tackling some of the most critical issues affecting ocean health. We bring decades of expertise and relationships in ocean science, policy and markets to the task.

California shows the world: We can save the ocean

The health of our vast global ocean holds the key to our survival. Today, we're at a critical moment when our decisions to address the threats of climate change and illegal fishing will shape the future of the ocean. We must act boldly so the ocean can continue to play the critical roles that enable life on Earth to exist.

Support Our Work

Help us meet the growing needs of ocean animals at the Aquarium and in the wild.

With your help, we can expand our Animal Care Center and provide the best possible veterinary care to the exceptional animals we exhibit—and their wild kin. Your gift will help us nearly triple the size of our existing facility, so we can continue our important work for stranded otter pups, injured shorebirds, and the thousands of fishes and other animals in our care.
