Protecting the world we share.
Every breath connects us to the world ocean — and to each other. We share a responsibility to conserve and sustain marine resources, habitats and our ocean’s biodiversity. At Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, we empower the youngest inhabitants of our blue planet to embrace that responsibility.
Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium just made a huge announcement! In order to continue their mission and carry out their vision, Mote now has plans to build a massive and very impressive new Aquarium around Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota County! The new Mote Science Education Aquarium will share ocean literacy with a much greater cross-section of residents and visitors. This will more than double the size of the current Mote Aquarium and will make learning about the oceans for all much easier in this 110,000 square feet of space.
