Overview



Alaska's only public aquarium and ocean wildlife rescue center is celebrating ten years on the shores of Resurrection Bay. Visitors to this "window on the sea" have close encounters with puffins, octopus, sea lions and other sealife while peeking over the shoulders of ocean scientists studying Alaska's rich seas and diverse sealife.

We are a private, non-profit corporation with approximately 105 full-time employees and dedicated staff of volunteers and interns.

Mission
The Alaska SeaLife Center generates and shares scientific knowledge to promote understanding and stewardship of Alaska's marine ecosystems.

Center-based research projects help scientists discover reasons for declining marine animal populations and environmental changes. The Alaska SeaLife Center provides care for sick and injured marine animals, yielding important information about wildlife populations. From early education to Elderhostel, the Alaska SeaLife Center educational programs and presentations are designed to expand the public's knowledge of Alaska's marine ecosystems. The many exhibits at the Alaska SeaLife Center immerse visitors in Alaskan marine ecosystems and provide opportunities to watch animals in naturalistic habitats as well as research settings.
