Why support us?

The ocean holds 97 percent of the Earth’s water, it influences our weather and climate, produces half of the oxygen we breathe, and is a source of food. The ocean sustains all life on earth. It is in trouble and it is up to us to protect it.

The Gulf of Maine is warming faster than 99.5% of the world’s oceans. This past fall, an “unusual mortality event” was declared for harbor seals, gray seals, minke whales, and North Atlantic right whales in our region. The balance of our local marine ecosystem is disrupted and the health of our World Ocean is threatened.

At the Seacoast Science Center, we are on the front lines, responding to marine mammals in need of care and collecting important data to help monitor the health our ocean. We are connecting people to the wonders of our ocean through engaging programs and hands-on exhibits, inspiring all ages to conserve our Blue Planet.

We cannot do it without you. We rely on the generosity of people like you to inspire conservation of our Blue Planet.
