Cocktails with the Critters 2020

See you Later Alligator! Cocktails with the Critters has been postponed. We hope to see you later this year


Based on the current situation we have decided to postpone our event. We feel that it is in everybody's best interest that we hold off on the party in order to comply with the current recommendations of the CDC. We hope to be able to hold the event later in the year when things settle down and hopefully all this runs its course. 

Why Donate


A young child's trip to the Estuarium, the DISL's Aquarium, sparks the imagination.  Time spent with our Discovery Hall Program's educators grows the desire to study marine science leading many to pursue college degrees.  University Programs create focus on research.



Every reason for supporting and donating is different, but every donation matters. Your donation enhances the Dauphin Island Sea Lab's educational, research and service programs.


Support Education


"The course style influenced me in the college that I eventually attended. I am very thankful for the Marine Science Course and the Sea Lab.  It was my first step into a field of study which I still find very interesting."


Autumn, Marine Science Course for High School Students.

Support Research


"The diversity of these experiences and being exposed to different lab techniques and a variety of field work has really helped me as a young scientist."


Ph.D. Student Jesse Gwinn

Support Campus


"I wanted to come to the Dauphin Island Sea Lab because of the researchers and the resources", Rodriguez explained.  "It's a close environment with easy access to faculty and everyone is excited to help you."


Masters Graduate, Alex Rodriguez

Jenny Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund



Please help us send under privileged high school students to the Summer Marine Science Course at the Sea Lab by donating to the Jenny Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund. This has been recognized as one of the most important needs for the Discovery Hall Programs.  A donation to the fund can make it possible for a child attend the month long program and gain high school credit.   Hep us reach our goal so we can make this an annual gift to the Sea Lab.
