I'll match every dollar up to $400. Plus, I'll be gifting one family an annual pass.
Alaska is one of the most awe-inspiring places on earth. No matter how far and wide I travel, I am always talking about the amazing wildlife and landscapes found in my home state. The Alaska SeaLife Center is a valuable part of preserving the unique species and coastal environment of Alaska.
For my Alaskan friends and family, the SeaLife Center provides education about our local ecosystems, joy when interacting with the animals, and pride in our state. Please consider donating to ensure we can continue to visit time and time again.
For my traveling friends, if you've ever been to Seward and visited the SeaLife Center, consider donating so other people can have the same wonderful experience you did.
Every little bit helps, thank you.
If half of all Alaskans donated just $10, we could reach our goal. If 100 people from each state in the US donated $50, we’d be well on our way to meet our goal. We understand that this is a hard time for all, but we need your support now so we can be here for you tomorrow.
How much can you raise? $5, $10, $100, $1,000? Every donation counts, please step up and show how much you care about Alaska's marine animals.
Opened in 1998, the Alaska SeaLife Center operates as a 501(c)(3), non-profit research institution and public aquarium in Seward, Alaska. The Center generates and shares scientific knowledge to promote understanding and stewardship of Alaska’s marine ecosystems. The Center is Alaska's only permanent marine mammal rehabilitation facility and responds to animals in distress along 34,000 miles of coastline.
The coronavirus pandemic and its effects have been uniquely devastating for the Alaska SeaLife Center. While our non-profit mission includes marine research, education, and wildlife response, we earn the majority of our revenue over the summer. It’s obvious this summer tourism season is just not going to be the same. ASLC expects annual visitor revenues to be reduced by 70%.
In addition to being a top destination for Alaska’s visitors, the Center is a home for invaluable research about the ocean, arctic and subarctic marine wildlife, climate change, and more. It’s the state’s only permitted facility to respond to stranded marine mammals. It’s an important part of Alaska’s science education system, providing educational opportunities and research to students all around the state and around the world through distance programs.
