Creating a Legacy for the Ocean


I joined the Aquarium in 1984. My father had attended an event there before it opened and told me, "You have to see what they're building in Monterey." Living nearby I was able to visit often and each time the Aquarium grew more interesting, but it was their education programs that convinced me to designate a bequest to support their work.

I knew that with its mission to inspire conservation of the ocean and commitment to teach children about the natural world it was the kind of organization I needed to support. The ocean is a key part of my life and Monterey Bay is very important to me. Everything we do here affects the ocean.

As a science and math teacher for 7th and 8th graders at Cesar E. Chavez Middle School in Watsonville, I know that the more children learn about Monterey Bay, the more they will want to protect it. I've participated in two of the Aquarium's science literacy courses for teachers. These programs and the staff who lead them are amazing. It sounds simple, getting kids to do science notebooks, but it's really about learning new ways to teach kids to teach themselves. These programs have affected me personally and they have affected science education throughout the region.
It's important to me that the Aquarium continues long after my lifetime. That's why I've designated 50% of my estate to its Endowment Fund for the Future of the Ocean. My bequest will help inspire children to become ocean leaders who will impact their communities and the world for generations to come.

Learn how you can support the Aquarium with a bequest, or to let us know you have included the Aquarium in your will or trust, please e-mail Mary Mullen or call (831) 648-4913. Thank you!
