Currently, Aquarium Staff are entrenched in on-going building renovation, development of new exhibits, pursuing community educational outreach and providing family activities at little or no cost on Aquarium grounds.
2) Westport Aquarium Staff are trained and highly active for the Marine Mammal Stranding Network, providing "on-the-beach" response to stranded seals, sea-lions and other marine mammals in need of monitoring, transport and documentation under the authority of WDFW and NOAA.
