No water, no life. No blue, no green.
Our lives depend on the ocean, and its future is in our hands.
"Every other breath we take comes from the ocean. Our fate and the ocean's are one."—Sylvia Earle
for the Seattle Aquarium
At Seattle Aquarium, our mission is Inspiring Conservation of our Marine Environment. Together, we can go even further. We can aspire to more than just limiting harm—we can restore health to our ocean and create buildings, communities and cities that help all living beings thrive.
Seattle Aquarium is now launching the most significant campaign in our history as part of a multi-phase, organization-wide transformation. We will dramatically expand our global and local conservation efforts and engage 1.2 million visitors every year in robust conservation education and inspiring encounters with marine life.
This campaign centers on three priorities, all of which will cultivate an ethos of care and action on behalf of marine life for generations to come.
Currently, the Seattle Aquarium has raised $125.9 million from a combination of private philanthropy and government sources, or 79% toward our comprehensive campaign goal of $160 million.
We will put ocean conservation at the center of our city and the hearts and minds of all visitors by creating a brand-new Ocean Pavilion, an iconic center for ocean advocacy that extends our ocean story from Seattle to the Indo-Pacific.
