As a donor and supporter of the ASLC I have always been impressed with their professionalism both as a landmark in Seward and a research facility. They advocate for marine science and conservation. A visit to their center is a one-of-a-kind experience that one does not easily forget.

We are proud to be supporters of such a magnificent facility. Even though we live 100 miles away, we visit often and it is a 'must' on our list when we have visitors. The research, rescue, education, and entertainment provided here are priceless. We visited Sea World in San Diego and were both surprised and pleased to find that the Alaska SeaLife Center is more impressive!

I have collaborated with the Alaska SeaLife Center on a variety of projects involving ocean science and environmental measurements. The Center staff are competent and motivated to advancement of marine science in Seward and in Alaska. The Center's managers are forward-thinking and willing to branch out from the core mission. I'm proud to have worked with the Alaska SeaLife Center and hope to continue to do so.

Even though we live more than 100 miles from Seward, we maintain an annual membership to the Alaska SeaLife Center. We are very proud to support this beautiful, educational facility and the research that is done there. We have guests from the Lower 48 every summer and AKSC is always on our "must see" list of places to share with them. Because the exhibits and presentations change frequently, we don't just drop off our guests, we visit the center with them.

We are local Bed and Breakfast owners and are thrilled to have a facility of the Alaska Sealife Center in our community for guests to experience. Our grandchildren and personal family visitors put a visit to the center as a main activity when in Seward. Nothing beats the memory of my 3 year old granddaughter up past to her elbows touching the sea life - even though her sweater was still on!

After 13 years living and working (and volunteering) in Alaska, the Alaska Sealife Center is among our favorite places to visit regularly. It is an exciting learning experience unlike any other. Our ecosystems can only be understood and respected through real scientific research; and the ASLC provides such by studying marine populations and passing on the knowledge to the public. In addition to education, it offers vital rehabilitation to animals in need.

The Alaska SeaLife Center holds a special place in my heart. I first visited the Center when I was a teenager, and now that I'm a young adult I still hold that same interest. Every time I visit the Center, I learn something new about the ocean, life in the sea, and useful information to making our environment a better place.

The Alaska SeaLife center is one of the high lights of our campus visit program for prospective students. Our students really enjoy comparing their combined weight with the sea lion and sticking their hands in the touch tank. Keep up the good work and i forward to bringing another group down soon.

We have enjoyed the Sea Life center since it opened. Now that my kids are teenagers, they still like to visit, and we are members. My personal favorite activity is to go downstairs and watch the birds "fly/swim" under water. The puffins are so graceful even though they are kind of awkward in the air! My kids love the sea lion that seems to play with the people watching through the glass. Every time I go, there is something different to see and I always learn something. We love it!

We became members of the Sea Life Center when we had our little girl. She has enjoyed it since she was only 4 months old. She loves to look at the fish up close and really enjoys the birding area with all the sea birds. We know she will learn a lot from all the displays as she gets older. We go at least once each time we are in Seward--sometimes 2 or 3 times!
