The National Marine Aquarium is the Ocean Conservation Trust’s window to the Ocean and is an essential element in the delivery of our habitat restoration and behaviour change programmes.

Our charity has been running the UK’s largest charitable aquarium for over 20 years. Our Aquarium was the first UK aquarium set up specifically to further learning, research and conservation of the marine environment. Our charity is all about people. Through our work we have connected over six million people with the Ocean in our Aquarium and delivered forty thousand curriculum linked education sessions.
