With your help, we're starting construction on our most ambitious undertaking since opening the Aquarium—our new Center for Ocean Education and Leadership. This state-of-the-art learning center is designed to engage and inspire California's students today, and for generations to come.
At a time when the ocean faces perilous threats—from overfishing, climate change, plastic pollution and more—your support of our work to inspire future ocean leaders is critically urgent. You can make this new Center possible. Please join us and make your gift today.
