Ocean policy and advocacy

The Seattle Aquarium works to conserve the region’s marine environment as a convener and connector of conservation awareness and action.

As an element of its mission, in the fall of 2011 the Aquarium acted to convene the leaders of the major organizations engaged in the conservation of Puget Sound. Now called the Marine Conservation Network, the Aquarium brings the network together to facilitate mutual awareness, cooperation and action among organizations dedicated to recovering and conserving the Puget Sound marine environment.
