Donate today to help build a new Octopus Habitat!

Let's bring a Giant Pacific Octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) back to SEA Discovery Center! Your donation will help build a new Octopus Habitat that will immerse visitors in the captivating world of this remarkable cephalopod. The octopus plays a vital role in the delicate ecosystem of the Salish Sea. The new exhibit will highlight ways to protect marine life and their habitats through understanding more about this intelligent, unique animal. We invite you to join us.
