How will the aquarium answer the call
for marine conservation?
Bold Ideas + Shared Action =
Get up close to our aquatic ecosystems through accessible habitats and hands-on activities that will engage visitors in the thrill of science, adventure and exploration.
Nurture a sense of wonder and curiosity in the next generation of engineers, conservationists, entrepreneurs, and inventors and encourage a commitment to creating innovative ways to care for our environment.
“The Aquarium Project is one of the only projects proposed for the Indian River Lagoon that will be truly transformational. Building species recovery and habitat restoration capacity is an essential precursor to implement the full-scale restoration work needed to recover this estuary of national significance.”
-Duane De Freese, PhD
Executive Director, Indian River Lagoon Council and Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program
By maintaining healthy waterways, we sustain our recreational lifestyle, protect property values, and safeguard tourism. In addition to Brevard Zoo, the second campus will attract and retain a high-talent, high-wage workforce to the East Coast of Florida. The Aquarium and Conservation Center will also allow us to build additional research and innovation partnerships in the region.
