• Over 18,000 visitors came to Sandoway to learn about coastal preservation, sea turtles, sharks, and so much more
• Over 5,000 students experienced our live animal interactions and hands-on educational curriculum
• This past summer 2,600 children, some seeing the ocean for the first time, were able to experience the wonders of the natural world through our camp and outreach programs
This year's Celebration is more important than ever. Simply put, Sandoway, home to over 50 varieties of birds, mammals, fish, amphibians and invertebrates, has been operating with inadequate back-up power for too long. After hurricane Irma we lost power for 8 days and our small generator was not enough to keep our doors open and some of our animals alive. It is time for us to make sure we can maintain healthy environments for our educational animals by having a life-saving generator that can sufficiently meet their needs.
