Your Support Matters to The Oceanarium

Your support buoys us. With you by our side, we are able to sustain operations from caring for our resident animals to stewarding the next generation through learning programs and taking action for animals and our blue planet.

Donations to the Oceanarium help us further our mission to provide educational exhibits and programs for all ages on local ecology, marine biology and research, citizen science, dark skies, fisheries and aquaculture, and STEM education in partnership with Maine schools.
