SeaLife Center, park service partner up in Seward

Posted: Monday, April 03, 2000

SEWARD (AP) -- The financially ailing Alaska SeaLife Center is taking on a research partner with deep pockets -- the National Park Service.

The park service has approved a $180,000 grant for a venture between the Seward-based sea life center and Kenai Fjords National Park. The money is to be allocated in 2001.

The venture is what's being called a ''learning and research center'' that would be housed within the sea life center.

It is intended to encourage sharing of scientific data between the park service and other research groups. Five such centers are planned across the nation.

The Alaska learning center will focus on the ecosystem found in several national parks, including Kenai Fjords, Lake Clark and Katmai, according to the park service.
