Education Spotlight

You’re invited to join Mystic Aquarium and community partners for our Ocean Ambassador’s coastal cleanup series. Our goal is to remove more than 1000 pounds of marine debris from Rhode Island and Connecticut shorelines before 2020 and we need your help!

Mystic Aquarium’s Animal Rescue Team responds to all stranded marine mammals and sea turtles along our local coastline and would like to invite you to join the over 500 volunteers who have already pledged to keep our shorelines clean and protect these amazing species!
