The mission of the California Academy of Sciences is to explore, explain, and sustain life.
Life-changing moments. World-changing science. We’re an aquarium, planetarium, rainforest, and natural history museum in the heart of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park—and a powerful voice for biodiversity research and exploration, environmental education, and sustainability across the globe.
While the Academy is thrilled to reopen, the impact of our 7-month closure will be felt for years to come. You can help us inspire new audiences, protect threatened ecosystems, and bring science to students around the world by making a tax-deductible gift today.
