Monterey Bay Aquarium's picture

Monterey Bay Aquarium 

The mission of the nonprofit Monterey Bay Aquarium is to inspire conservation of the oceans. Each year, the aquarium connects millions of people to ocean wildlife and ecosystems – through award-winning living exhibits; education programs that provide teachers and students with resources to become science- and ocean-literate; and through rigorous scientific research involving sea otters, great white sharks, bluefin tuna and other key ocean species. Its policy programs aim to transform the way seafood is caught and farmed, and to address critical ocean issues, from plastic pollution to the creation of marine protected areas. Educational resources include classroom curriculum materials, live web cams that can be incorporated into classroom learning, professional development opportunities for educators, and free admission for visiting school groups.
