Adopt a Friend with Fins, Feathers or Scales

We’re closed, but still caring for the more than 5,000 animals that call the Aquarium home. You can help keep our animal residents healthy with an Adopt an Animal gift. By symbolically adopting an animal, you help us provide our animals with expert care, daily food and vitamins and opportunities for enrichment.

Adopt an Animal orders will be fulfilled upon the Aquarium’s reopening. Until then, all adoptive parents will receive a digital toolkit, with an exclusive behind-the-scenes video about your animal, social media graphic and a Facebook profile banner, so all of your friends and family know about your generous support.
