Our Mission

The Ocean Alaska Science and Learning Center (OASLC) is dedicated to understanding and preserving the marine ecosystem that connects Alaska's National Parks through research and education.  

The OASLC works with diverse partners to achieve this mission and is part of a national effort to increase the amount of scientific research in the national parks, and thus the effectiveness of science-informed decision making, and to make that science available to the public.
