The WAVE Foundation, in partnership with the Newport Aquarium, strives to excite, engage and educate our community about aquatic life and the importance of protecting and conserving natural resources and the environment.
Programming initiatives exist in three core areas: education, conservation and volunteerism. WAVE provides unique education curriculum and experiences for students of all ages; supports and provides leadership in local, national and global conservation efforts; and has a vibrant volunteer program with over 500 dedicated volunteers.
Each of WAVE’s programs aims to increase awareness, curiosity and respect of aquatic animals and their environments. In doing so, we create unique opportunities for the community to experience and participate in our programs.
