This May, both the state of Alaska and the Alaska SeaLife Center celebrated their birthdays. The SeaLife Center, which is located in the city of Seward, commemorated its 10th anniversary. Founded with partial funding from the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Settlement Fund, the center provides care for sick marine animals, researches environmental changes and educates the public.
The family-friendly learning center promotes hands-on education and seeks to engage visitors, raising awareness about the region’s native animals and marine environment. The center’s puffin and octopus encounter tours, marine mammal and cephalopod family programs and evening twilight tours captivate children and adults alike.
