We're Making a Difference for the Oceans

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 and 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.

We're Saving Animals From Extinction

May 18, 2015

May 15 marked the 10th anniversary of Endangered Species Day. At the aquarium, we've worked every day for the past 30 years to save wildlife from extinction.

It's the focus of many of our efforts—from our living exhibits, to the research we conduct here and in the wild, to our work to shape public policy in ways that protect ocean habitats and wildlife.

Support Our Work

We're working hard every day to protect the ocean and the animals that call it home for future generations.

Our conservation research informs sound ocean policy decisions, our fieldwork is unlocking the secrets of threatened animals like sea otters and great white sharks and we're the recognized leader in the global sustainable seafood movement. Support from our donors makes this critical work possible. Our lives depend on a future with a healthy, vibrant ocean—please join us today.
