Western is revisioning operations of the SEA Discovery Center due to impacts from Covid-19. This revisioning involves working with city and community partners to maintain the public aquarium and establish sustainable, high-quality educational programs. During this time, Western will engage key stakeholders in creating a re-opening plan that meets the needs of local communities and other institutional and regional marine science centers. SEA is collaborating with several marine centers in the region to foster and provide care for the animals during the closure and to ensure their safe return to the SEA Discovery Center.

Community Support

SEA Discovery Center is still graciously accepting donations.
