Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) believes in preserving our environment while inspiring the human spirit through leadership in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of marine life, environmental education, research and conservation.

Scientific Research includes Sea Turtle Nesting and monitoring. CMA released more than 60,000 sea turtle hatchlings into the Gulf of Mexico since 2005.

CMA is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick and injured marine animals. Every animal that comes through our doors arrives because it was found suffering from an illness or severe injury in the wild.
