The Back to the Sea Society is dedicated to sparking curiosity for marine life and inspiring a desire to protect our ocean. Through hands-on education, we bring the ocean to eye level and strive to inspire the next generation of ocean stewards.
We operate the Touch Tank Hut on the Dartmouth Waterfront, a seasonal mini marine interpretive centre.
Our ultimate goal is to open a permanent catch-and-release aquarium on the Dartmouth Waterfront in Nova Scotia. The catch-and-release philosophy allows the animals to be returned back to the sea at the end of the season, minimizing environmental impact.
