Conservation & Science

The oceans need a voice

We’re proud that the Monterey Bay Aquarium is considered the best, most innovative public aquarium in the world, by peers and public alike. We’re equally proud that we’re recognized as an authority on behalf of ocean issues.

Our role as an ocean conservation leader – in sustainable seafood, in science and in policy reform to protect critical ocean resources – is growing. That’s in part because the threats facing the ocean today are greater than ever before.

Executive Director Julie Packard spoke recently with TakePart about the critical role the ocean plays in all our lives – and why it’s vital for aquariums and zoos to take a more active role speaking out on behalf of the natural world.

Listen to what Julie had to say.
