Conservation Practices


The Texas State Aquarium has a long standing history of excellence in interpreting the Gulf of Mexico and its inhabitants, but we do much more than that.

In keeping with our mission to practice and promote environmental conservation, we:

  • Foster the awareness of Texas watersheds through the implementation of the Aquarium’s Keepers of the Coast program.
  • Coordinate beach cleanups three times a year with the Texas General Land Offices Adopt-A-Beach program.
  • Facilitate Project WILD and Project WET, conservation based curriculums through our educational programming.
  • Facilitate Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Jr. Angler Program, which teaches children to be good stewards of the ocean resources.
  • Coordinate and host World Ocean Day, Rehab Days and Texas Recycles Day events yearly.
