The Maritime Aquarium runs 24/7, with advanced life support systems and dedicated personnel who care for each and every one of our 1,200 animals. In addition to supporting operations, the Annual Fund ensures that there is always something new to learn, do or see. It provides for exhibit maintenance and development as well as educational experiences for over 130,000 teachers and students from the tri-state area. It is essential and the most flexible support that we receive. Help us continue to teach, excite and inspire people of all ages to appreciate Long Island Sound and protect it for future generations.
