Donate

We all have an awesome responsibility to protect and restore our marine environment—and it all starts with understanding, and caring about, the amazing diversity of sea life below the surface. At the Aquarium, visitors begin their journeys of ocean exploration every day.

Your gift makes it possible.

“The naturalist Sir David Attenborough said, ‘No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced.’ Every day, volunteers and staff of the Seattle Aquarium help people, young and old, to see, touch, experience and learn about the diverse marine environment of Puget Sound and the ocean. We know this exposure makes Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment possible. That’s why we support the Seattle Aquarium!”
