|Sea Research Foundation Launches New Website to Showcase Global Reach|
Sea Research Foundation, Inc. launched a new website, www.searesearch.org, to showcase the organization’s global reach and provide a gateway to help users understand its leadership role in education, research and exploration. Based in Mystic, Connecticut, Sea Research is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that operates Mystic Aquarium, Institute for Exploration and Immersion Learning. In partnership with National Geographic Society, Sea Research also manages The JASON Project, an internationally acclaimed science program for students in classrooms, after-school and mentoring programs, and summer camps.
“Over the past three decades, Sea Research Foundation has evolved into a global organization,” explains Sea Research President & CEO Dr. Stephen M. Coan. “Our new website further establishes the Sea Research brand and demonstrates how the unique and complementary offerings of Mystic Aquarium, Institute for Exploration, Immersion Learning and The JASON Project contribute to our greater mission.”
Until now, the Sea Research brand lived on Mystic Aquarium’s website. The new Sea Research website illustrates how the organization inspires people to care for and protect our ocean planet through education, research and exploration. From Institute for Exploration’s deep-sea expeditions in the Mediterranean and Black Seas, to Mystic Aquarium’s animal rescue efforts in South Africa and the United States, the work of Sea Research has a universal impact. Immersion and JASON touch the lives of millions of students worldwide through engaging and effective science curricula, while Mystic Aquarium excites and engages over 700,000 visitors each year.
Mystic Aquarium, formally Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration, is counted among the nation’s leading aquariums with more than 300 species and an extensive collection of marine mammals, including New England’s only beluga whales. As a pioneer in offering guests a variety of up close animal encounters, Mystic Aquarium showcases the living collections, science and conservation work of Sea Research Foundation through exhibits, demonstrations and educational programming.
