The ocean and humans are inextricably linked. We continually strive to illustrate this for our visitors, no matter where they live on the planet.
As the outreach center for world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, we have an even greater ability to draw those connections. Scripps scientists are at the forefront of discoveries about the planet, and their findings have a profound impact on our knowledge about and interaction with the ocean – here in San Diego and around the world.
This brief video is a great introduction to the importance of Scripps and helps illustrate why the staff and volunteers at Birch Aquarium at Scripps come to work every day.
