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!

Where do we go when we have a weekend? The Alaska Sealife Center in Seward Alaska. My granddaughter and I drive down as often as possible, as she loves to come and visit. Her favorite is the tank where she can touch and feel the starfish and sea cucumbers. The staff is great and their love of the kids and of course the sealife is obvious. We enjoy watching Woody, the many fish and of course the birds. I can't wait for the opportunity to bring my other grandchildren. We enjoy not only knowing that marine animals are being saved, but the education which is available. Keep up the good work. We will be back.

The Seward SeaLife Center is one of a kind. I have sat in front of the glass watching the Stellar sea lion for hours. More fascinating are the families and kids who come and go -- some sit down in front of it and watch for nearly as long as I do. Many children are absolutely awed at the sight of this magnificent, gigantic mammal swimming effortlessly past them, again and again, from different directions. Children learn so much about our ocean animals through the wonderful, well-planned SeaLife Center. I live in Anchorage, a two-hour drive away (one-way), and won't miss stopping in to see what's new. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and it is always a real treat to visit. Who would think that our state would have such a great facility! Keep up the good work, ASLC!

I had the fortune of visiting the SeaLife Center while I was on vacation in last year. My husband and I were so impressed with the center, their mission and their execution that we will be life long donors. As a board member for the Berks County Humane Society, I know how difficult it is for a non-profit to compete with a for-profit organization, the Alaska SeaLife Center was on-par with any major zoo / aquarium we'd seen in the lower 48 and the staff was even better in their interaction with the patrons.

The SeaLife Center is a unique institution in Alaska. It's a great hands-on place for kids and adults to see and experience the marine ecosystem of the sub-arctic.
