Reviews for Seward Association For The Advancement Of Marine Science

Rating: 5 stars  

I am thrilled and privileged to be a part of the ASLC team. Their long history and current efforts in marine research, rehabilitation, and education exemplify Alaska marine science. Their mission is complex, but they execute it admirably. The combination of talented people and top-notch facilities, in a fantastic location, make the Center a real treasure for Alaska, America, and the world.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Understanding marine mammal biology, ecology, and husbandry. Learning how a public aquarium and research institute functions behind the scenes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase its funding and attract more scientists from outside Alaska.
