Back to the Sea Society Logo

The Back to the Sea Society is a charity dedicated to sparking curiosity for local marine life off the coast of Nova Scotia (Mi’kma’ki), and to fostering a desire to protect our oceans. Here at Back to the Sea, we operate the Touch Tank Hut, a community aquarium on the Dartmouth waterfront, along with other occasional events to promote aquatic life and its conservation.

To get to know our oceans and the life within it, we need to have the opportunity to see it at eye level, ask questions, get curious, be compelled to care, and inspired to make sustainable choices. We do this at the Touch Tank Hut by displaying only smaller, local, shallow-dwelling animals, with a focus on hands-on learning. We follow a catch-and-release philosophy, where all animals collected are released back into the ocean in the fall.
