As the largest estuary on the west coast, containing 90 percent of the state’s remaining wetlands, the San Francisco Bay ecosystem is a rich, productive place that is home to many animals above and below its surface. Right now we are seeing changes in this region due to climate change including a shift in the water’s chemistry, migration of animals to new regions, changes to rainfall and snow patterns, rising sea levels, increasing wildfires, and more. As the premier non-profit organization dedicated to educating about the San Francisco Bay ecosystem, we are committed to connecting our visitors to the changes we are seeing and inspiring action. Aquarium of the Bay will also strive to be a regional leader in climate change communication through our exhibits and visitor programming for other institutions to learn from.
