The mission of the nonprofit Monterey Bay Aquarium is to inspire conservation of the ocean

Nearly four decades ago a team of young scientists had a vision of turning an abandoned sardine cannery into a world-class aquarium — one that would showcase the lush kelp forests and rugged coastline of Monterey Bay. 

For 35 years, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has entertained and inspired millions of visitors by inviting them to peek below the surface and witness the wonder of what lives in the ocean. 

Today the Monterey Bay Aquarium continues to push the boundaries of what an aquarium can be.
