The Living Coast Discovery Center is a living, breathing, flapping, buzzing and splashing home to the unique animals and plants of Southern California.  6 miles south of downtown San Diego, the Center sits on the 316-acre Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge.

Have you ever gone swimming in the open water and caught a glimpse of other creatures swimming with you? The Discovery Center aquariums are home to Moray eels, Leopard sharks, stingrays, guitarfish and other marine life found in San Diego Bay.

The Discovery Center is not a natural history museum. Rescued birds thrive at exhibits like Raptor Row and Eagle Mesa. Owls, pelicans, gnatcatchers and eagles are just a few of our resident native birds.
