SEWARD ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF MARINE SCIENCE
February 17, 2011
I always enjoy a trip through the Alaska SeaLife Center; year after year it evolves and improves. It is an excellent adventure for visitors from out of state and helps me to share my excitement about Alaska and it's wild inhabitants. I especially love the tanks where you can observe wildlife swimming. This facility is so rich and engaging that I got a family pass this year so we can go as often as we like. We are looking forward to meeting Eden, the new Sea Lion. And, I have to admit, I look forward to spending money in the gift store. They have excellent educational products, and I like to gift shop there. I feel good about spending money to help support the Alaska SeaLife Center.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The new fish exhibit helps educate me about the life cycle of salmon, which I subsist on. The bird exhibit gives me the closest look at waterfowl that I have ever enjoyed; the detail is exquisite. Overall, my appreciation for the wild life and wild lands of Alaska increases as my knowledge and personal experience of the details increases (such as in the touch/feel tank of ocean creatures.)
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them more money to work with. More money for research.
General Member of the Public & I purchased a family pass so that a family of four children who are in foster care could enjoy outings and learn about their home. .
