The funds you raise as a participant of the Seal Splash will go to help Mystic Aquarium’s Animal Rescue Program. Our dedicated team provides specialized and compassionate care for the rehabilitation of the animals with the ultimate goal of releasing them back into their natural habitat.

The efforts of the Aquarium and its volunteer "first responder" network are centered on the coasts of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Fishers Island, NY. To date the Aquarium has responded to more than 1,100 stranded seals, whales, dolphins, porpoises and sea turtles.

Mystic Aquarium’s Animal Rescue Program supports animals in need, educates the public about the marine environment and its inhabitants, and works to inspire people to care about and protect our ocean planet.

‘The work we do always strives to undertake a great conservation effort. Through research done at the aquarium and in the field, we hope to better understand the animals that make-up the ocean environment, and by directly impacting individuals within that environment to benefit the overall population, like we’re doing with our rescue and rehabilitation efforts’.
-Walter “Skip” Graf, Stranding Coordinator

Raise $100 in addition to your registration fee and receive a complimentary long-sleeved “Seal Splash” t-shirt.

The top fundraiser will win a Mystic Aquarium animal encounter program of their choice!
