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.

You can help inspire a new generation of ocean leaders by supporting our Center for Ocean Education and Leadership.

With your help, we can expand our programs for schoolchildren and teachers by building our new, state-of-the-art Center for Ocean Education and Leadership. At a time when the ocean faces threats like overfishing, climate change and plastic pollution, we have the opportunity to build a healthier future for the ocean.
