Support the National Aquarium

The National Aquarium and its Animal Care and Rescue Center are temporarily closed in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

During this period of temporary closure, a core team is still hard at work providing the same level of care and welfare to our 20,000 animal residents and rehabilitation patients. As a nonprofit, we rely on the generous support of our donors, members and guests to advance our operations, conservation initiatives and mission.
