The Sea Life Mission
Our Vision is of a world where our oceans are healthy, properly protected and full of diverse life.
We want all visitors to our aquarium to love the oceans and the creatures that live in them as much as we do. By sharing their beauty, we want to inspire you to help us protect them for generations to come.
Our partnership with the SEA LIFE Trust and Kelly Tarlton's Marine Wildlife Trust allows us to build a community of young leaders to influence positive change for the future health of the world's oceans. Each year, we reach millions of visitors providing them with the opportunity to:
- Engage in and learn about our aquatic environments and foster action to help improve habitat health;
- Encourage practical and simple changes that they can make that collectively contribute to better outcomes for our aquatic environments; and
- Support innovative and practical projects that help users make a considerable difference to the many threatened endangered aquatic species and habitats.
Supporting the hoiho!
Here at Kelly Tarlton's, we love all wildlife! That's why we are proud to support the work being done by the amazing team at the Wildlife Hospital in Dunedin to protect hoiho.
Hoiho are a native penguin species that is currently endangered; every individual is crucial to the long-term survival of the species, and so the specialized work being done at the Wildlife Hospital is critical to their conservation.
