Friends of the Sea Lab

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) is Alabama’s marine science education and research laboratory. Located on the eastern tip of Dauphin Island, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, the DISL is surrounded by Mobile Bay, Mississippi Sound and the waters of the Gulf, making it perfectly situated for a wide range of marine science activity. DISL’s mission encompasses marine science research, coastal zone management policy, K-12 education, professional development for teachers and educating the general public through The Estuarium, DISL’s public aquarium.

Your contribution to join the Friends of the Sea Lab will help support the following:
• Marine Research
• Fisheries Research
• Campus Development
• Estuarium
• Educational Programs

Friends of the Sea Lab enjoy unlimited visits to the Estuarium

The Estuarium, the State of Alabama's Aquarium highlights the four key habitats of coastal Alabama: the Mobile Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay, the Barrier Islands and the Northern Gulf of Mexico. It includes the 10,000 square foot Exhibit Hall, a 7,000 gallon sting ray touch pool, and the Living Marsh Boardwalk. This facility has 31 aquariums totaling over 30,000 gallons with more than 100 species on display. The Estuarium showcases the plants, animals, and other natural resources found in the Estuary and its surrounding marine habitats.

 

"Windows to the Sea” the interactive wing to the Estuarium features  a unique look at our oceans through the use of technology, including  An interactive video wall which offers a glimpse into a Sargassam community and takes visitors on a spin around the globe to see how the Earth has evolved over millions of years.   The experience extends to a touch screen table with activities for visitors of all ages and the  “Sounds of the Sea,” which teleports visitors through the Delta, Gulf of Mexico, and beyond with sounds of the alligator, various fish, the Gaillard Island brown pelican and tern colonies, and right whales. 
 
The centerpiece of the wing is a beautiful 500 gallon tank  featuring a Hawaiian reef community.
