Our Science Mission

At Sea Coast Aquarium, our mission is to advance oceanic awareness and environmental stewardship through education and scientific research. We are an independent non-profit organization with a focus on science-based public outreach, training the next generation of marine biologists, and promoting conservation of our oceans through wildlife rehabilitation. While we all know that many aquariums are centered around entertainment value alone, we believe there's still room for family fun that can also give you practical knowledge about our world's waterways. Our exhibits feature interactive activities designed to educate visitors about sustainable living practices that benefit both the environment and communities around us.
