About the Seacoast Science Center (information provided from their website, accurate as of 5/9/18):

The Seacoast Science Center is a non-profit marine science education organization located within Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, New Hampshire.

Located within Odiorne Point State Park, they provide educational experiences on behalf of New Hampshire State Parks and have been connecting people to the wonders of our coast since 1992. Their live animal exhibits feature the amazing creatures that live in the rapidly changing Gulf of Maine ecosystem. Their engaging programs make learning about the ocean fun for everyone, from pre-K to senior rediscovery. Their hands-on science exhibits motivate families to become caretakers of our blue planet.

They are the home of the Marine Mammal Rescue Team, responding to marine mammals along the coast of New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. Their rescue work creates coastal communities that are safe for both people and seals. Each seal-side conversation is an opportunity to educate people about the animals and their coastal ocean habitat. One of just 100 federally authorized response organizations, their rescue work contributes critical data for research on the status of these protected species, considered the early warning system for ocean health.
