Unlike a traditional aquarium, the Seymour Marine Discovery Center takes you behind the scenes to learn more about scientific research in our oceans. Learn more about elephant seal behavior, understand the role of sea otters in their ecosystem, observe the differences in plant and animal life in different tidepools, or learn more about the hearing of sea lions and harbor seals.
A Photo Documentary of California’s Marine Protected Areas
Photographer Jasmine Swope and author Dwight Holing’s traveling exhibit, Our Ocean’s Edge, will be on display from late January through early June. Swope has captured the essence of California’s 120+ marine protected areas along California’s 1,100-mile coastline. The result is Our Ocean’s Edge, a photographic documentary project coupled with original narratives. The exhibit will feature 20 to 30 framed prints, ranging in size from two by three feet, to as large as three by six feet.
