At the S.E.A. Aquarium and Dolphin Island we work closely with a number of partners to facilitate our education, research and conservation aims.
Our mission is to inspire conservation through fun and educational experiences. Our partnerships allow us to unite with others who are also deeply committed to the protection and preservation of the oceans.
By combining scientific knowledge with husbandry expertise, together we work towards protecting marine life for the long term benefit of all life on Earth. We thank our partners for their continued support.
Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) and S.E.A. Aquarium collaborated on coral research projects with the aim of facilitating effective restoration back into the natural environment. As the main science and technology university in Singapore, NTU has made substantial contributions to Singapore’s drive for research and innovation spearheaded by the National Research Foundation (NRF), particularly in the high-investment areas of biomedical sciences, environmental and water technologies, and interactive and digital media. Our research with NTU, specifically the Advanced Environmental Biotechnology Centre, focused on coral spawning, larval settlement and growth.
The School of Applied Science at Temasek Polytechnic (TP) was awarded the Marine Life Fund (MLF) by Resorts World Sentosa for the project on mud crab breeding research in late 2013. The aim is to define the developmental processes for mud crabs and use this information to provide a sustainable supply of mud crabs. Temasek Polytechnic (TP) is the leading premier educational institution established since 1990. Apart from training students and working adults in technical competency for the respective industry, applied research in aquaculture has always been one of the key areas of emphasis for further capability development. Through a dedicated team of academic faculty staff and research scientists, much industry collaboration has been carried out through joint research, training and consultancy services.
The Horniman Museum and Gardens Aquarium in Forest Hill and S.E.A. Aquarium became partners in early 2015. The partnership focused on coral reproduction, with the aim to predictably spawn corals simultaneously in London and Singapore. The Horniman Museum and Gardens’ vision was to use its worldwide collections and Gardens to encourage a wider appreciation of the world, its peoples and their cultures, and its environments. The Horniman’s aquarium is one of London’s oldest surviving aquaria. A key part of the aquarium’s ethos is the development of strong research collaborations with universities and aquariums, nationally and internationally. The focus of the research was on the reproductive biology of jellyfish and coral.
