About Dauphin Island Sea Lab
A fully equipped marine laboratory, Dauphin Island Sea Lab's marine science programs propagate knowledge of marine science to learners of all ages. Its dedication to education begins at an early age, with K–12 teacher education programs that bring information on marine environments into the classroom. For a slightly older crowd, the lab also runs summer college programs and graduate programs, during which students can study oceanography and coastal ecology. Along the way, the Sea Lab and its volunteers works to maintain coastal wetlands and resources, conducts research on the Mobile Bay watershed and shore waters, and maintains the Gulf of Mexico Science Journal.
In addition to its scientific work, the Sea Lab runs a public aquarium, the Estuarium, which depicts local marine habitats including the Gulf of Mexico, a drowned river valley, and a living salt marsh. These exhibits contain a variety of native plants and wildlife such as marsh grasses, recreations of cypress swamps, and even an American alligator. Kids can also get their hands wet (literally) at the touch pool, where they can reach into tanks and interact with live fish.
