CONSERVATION AT SEA LIFE

Here at the National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham we care deeply about our oceans, the creatures that live above and beneath the surface and those we are lucky enough to have in our care.

Under our ethos BREED, RESCUE, PROTECT we have established breeding programs to better understand species, from Undulate Rays to Coral Propagation. We help home aquarium owners buy fish responsibly and educating our visitors on the issues surrounding the purchase of certain species of fish for a home aquarium. 

 

Our registered charity, The SEA LIFE Trust, was set up in 2013 to support projects and campaigns that make a measurable difference to the protection of marine wildlife and habitats. Read more about the Trust’s above.

 

We also work with a number of conservation partners all over the world, include marine specialists like Bite-Back Shark and Marine Conservation, The Big Fish Campaign, and The Marine Conservation Society’s Good Fish Guide.

We run breeding programmes for creatures as diverse as rays, jellyfish, and seahorses.

Many of our aquariums rescue and release injured and sick creatures, including seals, turtles and porpoises.

We campaign for the global protection of marine wildlife.
