Conservation & Care

Miami Seaquarium has provided a home for animals requiring urgent care since before it even opened 1955. We received our first rescue manatee months before we welcomed our first guest. Our commitment to rescuing and rehabilitating thousands of animals has played a significant role in their successful release back into the wild. Discover why the mission of conservation and care holds such importance at Miami Seaquarium.



Education & Outreach

Conservation isn’t just about caring for our animals and environment, it’s about caring for our community by educating about the world we all share. With our animals acting as ambassadors for those species impacted by threats in the wild, we champion the importance of environmental stewardship to all – teaching others to love and conserve animals as much as we do.



Who We Are, What We Do

It likely comes as no surprise to hear that a marine life zoo-aquarium (sometimes referred to as an oceanarium) is a complex operation. Let us take you behind the scenes to learn about the animals, people, and place that make Miami Seaquarium what it is: a world-class leader in education, conservation and collaborative research, right here along the Biscayne Bay since 1955.




In the mission to make our world a better place for all its inhabitants, we know we can’t go it alone. That’s why Miami Seaquarium partners with some of the globe’s leading animal welfare institutions for accreditation, ensuring we are held to the highest standards as we promote conservation to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.




Our story stretches back to the mid-1950s, when an Ohio businessman took a leap of faith into the emerging world of American Aquariums, choosing a quiet spot in Key Biscayne to make history. <!– Read on to learn about Miami Seaquarium’s history. –>
