"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

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.
