The Texas Center for Wildlife Rescue, Recovery, & Research, to be built on the

Aquarium campus adjacent to Corpus Christi Bay, will house the Aquarium’s

Wildlife Rescue Program with state-of-the-art expanded facilities, laboratories,

and surgical suite. This new 25,000 sq ftWildlife Conservation Center, set to break

ground in 2021, will also provide designated laboratories for collaborative research

with visiting scientists; increased opportunities for undergraduate and graduate

student coursework; and the ability to care for large scale numbers of negatively

impacted wildlife due to natural events and hazardous accidents.

In September 2019, ExxonMobil Corporation made a significant contribution

of $2 million to help build the new Texas Center for Wildlife Rescue, Recovery,

& Research. This tremendously generous gift is most humbling and sincerely

appreciated. ExxonMobil Corporation has long supported environmental education

programs and efforts to protect wildlife and we very much appreciate their

commitment to Gulf Coast wildlife conservation.
