Support Our Expansion

Building Hope
Founded in 1972, Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) recycled this abandoned waste water treatment plant to help the local marine life.  The purpose was to rescue marine animals, treat them and get them back into their natural habitat.  Some of those non-releasable animals have made CMA their home.  Today, CMA provides a permanent home to nearly 50 residents.

Through the success of our Dolphin Tale movies, we have generated tremendous interest in our work with more than 2 million people visiting CMA and learning about our work.

In order to meet the increasing demands of:

  • Our rescue, rehab and release efforts
  • Educating the next generation on marine and environmental conservation
  • Expanding research into saving the lives of animals
  • Meeting the needs of the hundreds of children and veterans who have bonded to Winter through adversity
  • Providing the most compelling experience for the families to come see our work

The result is, we must expand!

Highlights of expansion will include:

  • Mission focused facility of rescue, rehab and release
  • Enhanced space and more natural habitats for non releasable animals
  • State of the art facilities to treat and rehabilitate the animals
  • Educating people of all ages
