Alabama Power Supports DISL Capital Campaign


Thank you Alabama Power for the generous donation to support the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation's Capital Campaign - Building Spaces for a Brighter Future. Your continued support over the years has allowed us to increase our programming and aid in our marine science education and research.

Building Spaces for a Brighter Future

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab Foundation Capital Campaign


The Dauphin Island Sea Lab provides spaces necessary to meet today's demand for wide range of teaching environments.  To meet this demand, an outdoor classroom is critical to achieve the educational mission of the Sea Lab.


An outdoor classroom and a larger, deeper pool complex at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab will enable both the Discovery Hall and University Programs ability to provide modern, experiential marine skill training for students of all ages.

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

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.
