SEA LIFE Sydney's Conservation Pillars

Conservation at our core

We are committed to protecting Australia's unique aquatic animals and their habitats.

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.

We aim to inspire our visitors to care as much as we do and help raise awareness of the critical importance of our oceans.

After all, we only get one planet!

Campaigning and Awareness

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.

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.
