During the expansion, Clearwater Marine Aquarium will remain open.
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium expansion will allow us to rescue and release more marine life, create an enhanced living habitat for our resident non-releasable animals and provide more space for our guests.
We are expanding in order to meet the increasing demands of:
- Rescue, rehab and release of marine animals. We just experienced our busiest sea turtle rehab year ever and need more space as this important work continues to increase.
- Expanding research into saving the lives of more marine animals and protecting our environment
- Meeting the needs of the tens of thousands of children and wounded soldiers who have bonded with Winter and our other rescued animals through their own adversity
- Educating the next generation on marine and environmental conservation
- Providing compelling, educational experiences for families
