Support our Resilience Fund with a donation

Give a gift to the Aquarium on behalf of a special someone and help ensure we can continue to delight all comers with the wonders of the marine environment on the other side of the pandemic and for years to come.

This is the perfect time to donate—through the end of the year, longtime supporters Stuart and Lee Rolfe will double all gifts made to the Seattle Aquarium, up to $500,000! No matter the amount, your support makes a real impact.

Wait, why do animals at the Aquarium need toys? Because they’re an important part of enrichment—which, in the world of animal care, refers to experiences that offer animals an opportunity to satisfy their behavioral needs, optimize their level of mental stimulation and create a rich, variable environment. 

Toys and other items help our animal care specialists create enrichment activities—and you can help make that possible by purchasing something from their wish list!

This is the perfect gift for someone who is passionate about animal care, and they might even get to see their gift in action on one of our webcams or during a future visit to the Aquarium.
