Clearwater Marine Aquarium

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is fundamentally a hospital for sick and injured marine life. However, what we do is so much more. We inspire the human spirit, through the animals and their stories of survival, which touch all of us. We educate young people on the preservation and conservation of our animals and environment. We collaborate on scientific research to better understand animal behavior, illness, treatment and the prevention of animal decline. We protect the growth of the endangered sea turtle population by guarding a 26-mile stretch of beach within Pinellas County. We rescue and rehabilitate injured and ill animals with the aim of releasing them back into their natural habitat. When this isn’t possible, we provide long term residential care.
