Review for Seward Association For The Advancement Of Marine Science, Seward, AK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Alaska SeaLife Center is a remarkable institution for communicating marine science to Alaskans and visitors. The list of projects identified for this 5k giveaway would increase the capacity of ASLC to spread key scientific messages to an interested public and provide the opportunity for career development for a summer intern. I have visited many if not most of the preeminent aquariums and marine research institutions across the US in my career and strongly feel the ASLC does the best job I have seen for the budget they have to work with. I strongly encourage your support in this and future fundraising endeavors.

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

-Delighting visitors from all over the world. -Providing research opportunities for faculty and graduate students -Empowering emerging scientists as interns and docents -Excellent diversity of fundraising efforts -Dedication to the research community and an interest in national and international marine issues -A knowledgeable, dedicated and hardworking staff.

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

I would like to see what ASLC could do with an increased budget, both in the communication and practice of marine conservation.

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?


Will you recommend this organization to others?


What is unique about this organization?

They are the only institution of their kind in the State of Alaska, which is a key resource for the US and focus point in climate change. If ASLC does not thrive, I see no alternative institution to take on their mission of educating Alaskans and visitors on ocean science in this magnificent state.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & As a marine biology graduate student in Seward, AK and afterwards as an employee of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration I have had the privilege of spending many hours in the Center and working with staff. .
