Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium

Transforming Science into Action.

The Problem

Ocean health is critical to human health. Every other breath we take comes from the oceans. Our oceans absorb 90% of the extra heat produced by rising greenhouse gasses. Coastal regions drive over 60% of global GNP. However, our oceans are facing serious threats caused by humans, such as increasing industrialization, accelerating climate change, and unsustainable overfishing.

The Solution

The Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life at the New England Aquarium is a groundbreaking initiative that expands the Aquarium’s cutting-edge marine research and data-driven conservation solutions. Through the work of the Anderson Cabot Center, our researchers offer practical solutions to mitigate human impacts on our oceans. We promote these science-based solutions on a global scale, building on the Aquarium’s nearly 50-year legacy of protecting our blue planet and advocating for vital and vibrant oceans.
