History and Mission
Miami Seaquarium (MSQ) was established in 1955 on Virginia Key, Miami, Florida. Miami Seaquarium is home to an array of aquatic animals, such as penguins, sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, tropical fish, and marine mammals. Miami Seaquarium cares for six species of marine mammals, including harbor seals, California sea lions, bottlenose dolphins, pacific white-sided dolphins, Florida manatees, and an orca. Since its inception, Miami Seaquarium has rescued, rehabilitated, and released numerous aquatic animals. Today, Miami Seaquarium is only one of four facilities to provide critical care to injured/sick manatees in the United States. With outreach programs, educational camps, and conservation outposts throughout the park, Miami Seaquarium continues to keep conservation and education as their core values.
