Seattle Aquarium Society-Seas
The mission of the Seattle Aquarium is Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment. To do so we must help citizens learn about the interconnectedness of human behavior, the ocean, and climate change. As our local population grows, we must all work to restore and preserve the spectacular beauty and health of Puget Sound. The Seattle Aquarium is uniquely positioned to help over 850,000 annual visitors, including over 40,000 students, each year understand and become aware of the impact they have on our marine environment.
Since opening on May 20, 1977, the seattle aquarium has been an integral part of the city and the region, providing a platform for entertainment, education and conservation. Visitors of all ages from near and far come to the seattle aquarium to see up close our charismatic collection of animals, including sea otters and octopuses, and to discover the wonders of our oceans. The aquarium has played host to nearly 28 million visitors, more than 850,000 visitors each year since 2015, and continues to inspire conservation of our marine environment.continued on schedule o
