Conservation at SEA LIFE
Here at SEA LIFE 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.
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.
At SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, we are committed to protecting Australia's unique aquatic animals and their habitats.
THE SEA LIFE PLEDGE
Everything we do is about celebrating the sea. We're passionate about preserving marine habitats and protecting the incredible species that live in them. Marine conservation is at the heart of everything we do- supporting projects across the world that inspire more people to care.
OUR CONSERVATION COMMITMENTS:
We raise funds for conservation projects like Saving Nemo's Home - identifying the impacts of sea temperature rises on sedentary species such as anemones.
Our global programme protects endangered creatures like seahorses. We never take any from the sea for display.
With over ten million visitors a year, we raise the awareness of marine conservation issues, build support for conservation projects, and inspire more people around the world to care.
We actively engage our visitors on current marine issues, petitioning governments, hosting conferences, supporting causes- to ban whaling, outlaw shark-finning, support marine parks and reduce by-catch.
We have some amazing creatures living with us. We only keep those we know will flourish in our carefully prepared habitats.
WHALES AND DOLPHINS:
We believe these creatures should not be captured, kept in captivity or publicly displayed and are actively committed to ethical methods of reducing the numbers that are.
