Life Began in the Oceans

Our vision To be a global leader in fostering support for the conservation of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. That means leveraging conservation expertise and collaboration for a sustainable future.

We contribute meaningful conservation efforts every day and are thankful to our friends and partners that join with us with conservation actions. A portion of ticket revenue goes directly to conservation projects in and outside of our aquarium.


Our initiatives include investing in the next generation of conservation leaders by providing grants for graduate education, implementing conservation practices, coordinate beach cleanups, and institute plastic pollution reduction. Our Second Chances Wildlife Rehabilitation Program is a valuable community service that continues to grow with state-of-the-art equipment and highly-trained staff, allowing us to rehabilitate injured animals.
