Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Provide opportunities for animals to connect people to life's uncomplicated joys and wonders

Regardless of generation, race or gender, when an Aquarium visitor touches their first sea anemone, spots "Nemo" hiding in the coral, or rounds the corner and watches an Alaskan sea otter at play, a sense of joy and wonder overcomes them.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

As experts in our field, we conduct important research on the giant Pacific octopus, sixgill sharks, Alaskan sea otters and many more local animals. Philosophically, we believe that the Aquarium plays an important role in the dissemination of not only our own scientific research but also the work of other scientists performing ocean research.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

Our education strategy requires formal, independent evaluation of our structured programs and use of inquiry-based interactive teaching techniques.
