Seattle Aquarium

Our lives depend on the ocean, the life support system for our blue planet. Industrial pollution, destructive overfishing, oil spills, noise, nearshore habitat loss, and warming and acidifying waters caused by climate change are choking the ocean and endangering all life on Earth—including ours. The ocean's future is in our hands. At the Seattle Aquarium, our mission is Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment. At this defining moment for our ocean and our planet, this mission matters more than ever. The Seattle Aquarium has a vision to make ocean conservation and restoration a global imperative, a community value, and a deeply personal priority for all—starting here on Seattle's waterfront.
