Audubon Aquatic Center

Audubon’s Aquatic Center, housed at Freeport-McMoRan Audubon Species Survival Center, launched a new era in animal care when it began operations in 2008. The expansive facility provides holding and breeding tanks for Audubon Aquarium of the Americas' extensive marine collection.

The Aquatic Center also serves as headquarters for the Louisiana Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Program (LMMSTRP). Coordinated by Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, LMMSTRP is the primary response partner for the state of Louisiana for rehabilitating marine mammals (dolphins) and sea turtles.
