We invite you to join us in creating a new Octopus Habitat

With your help SEA will create a new habitat for a Giant Pacific Octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini). The new Octopus Habitat will immerse visitors in the captivating world of this remarkable cephalopod, and its vital role in the delicate ecosystem of the Salish Sea. By highlighting the intelligence, adaptability and unique behaviors of the octopus, SEA seeks to foster a deeper understanding of marine life and emphasizes the importance of conservation. We invite you to join us.
