Each year Splash! guests have the opportunity to further our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment.


  • We inspire children to care for the natural world they will inherit – with engaging animals and informed, approachable staff we spark children’s interest in the marine environment.
  • We are the state’s largest marine conservation education platform.
  • Aquariums such as ours have a vital role in raising public awareness about the need to protect the health of our world’s ocean.
  • The Seattle Aquarium is the keystone to the City’s new, revitalized waterfront.


Your dollars help us in so many ways.


  • Fish school and so do kids. Bring 1,500 more students to the Aquarium.


  • Move over Leonard! Nemo's on the way—help send a team for a tropical collection trip.


  • If they were human, they'd be eating at Etta's. Feed three sea otters for one month.


  • Remember that time at Marine Camp? Help 10 disadvantaged kids find their inner Cousteau.


  • Seal the deal and feed a harbor seal for a year.


  • Puffins are cheap dates. Feed one for a whole year!
