What We Do

The Seattle Aquarium’s mission—Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment—begins right here at home.

Community Impact

We strive to bring families and the community together in awe and understanding of the ocean and its importance to life on Earth.

Conservation Action

Beautiful, majestic and teeming with a rich diversity of life, our precious Puget Sound is nevertheless in trouble. Our goal is for every visitor to the Aquarium to come away with new knowledge about the life dwelling within the Sound, as well as what can be done to help preserve it.

Living an Ocean Ethic

We also make sure we “walk the talk” regarding conservation issues within our facility. Behind the scenes and beyond our walls, we’re hard at work on initiatives that create greater understanding of some of the pressing matters facing Puget Sound, the ocean, and the animals that call them home.
