Though we operate independently of one another, MBARI and the Monterey Bay Aquarium collaborate to support our shared ocean research and conservation goals.
MBARI is a private non-profit oceanographic research center that receives sustained support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Our mission is to advance marine science and technology to understand a changing ocean. Together with our education and conservation partner, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, we seek to inspire a new generation of ocean explorers.
MBARI is the Aquarium’s research and technology partner, and the Aquarium is MBARI’s education and conservation partner. Together, we work to educate the public about the ocean and share the knowledge and technology innovations gained from MBARI’s work with the global science and conservation community.
Our teams work together in many ways. Some examples include:
