(September 21, 2020) --

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab’s facilities were significantly impacted by Hurricane Sally.  Most impacted were the main research building, graduate student housing, and the area around the aquarium.  Parts of campus, including two of the four education buildings on the south side of campus, show less damage than these other areas.  However, before field trips, camps, and public programs can resume, all areas of campus and resources need to be checked and verified as safe and habitable.  This process, as well as repairs, has already begun.  

We appreciate so many of you contacting us with your concern and support and ask that you bear with us as we determine a time table for hosting groups on campus again.  We will let you know as soon as we have more information and a time for reopening.
