The SEA Lab is a free public aquarium that educates and inspires people to conserve our oceans. We provide the opportunity for visitors to touch local marine life while educating people on how they can minimize their impacts on our coastal environment. Our program provides education programs for youth often denied access to traditional marine science opportunities. Our instructors challenge the next generation of researchers and motivate them to consider a career in science.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Our oceans are not fully understood. The SEA Lab aquarium and education programs educate and inspire visitors to learn more about the marine environment. By inspiring others and providing an understanding, people want to learn more and recognize the value of the oceans and they want to help preserve our oceans for future generations.
How will this project solve this problem?
The SEA Lab operates a free public aquarium for visitors to gain an understanding of the animals that call the pacific ocean their home. Informal instructors provide low cost education programs for under served students and communities.
Potential Long Term Impact
When people understand how their actions can impact our fragile oceans they change their behavior to help conserve our oceans. This education will help reduce pollution and other degrading impacts we are having on our oceans and sustain the marine environemnts for future generations.
