Accessing Virtual Programs

The National Aquarium uses Zoom as our platform for virtual programming. If you are required by your school to use a different platform, you will need to arrange in advance to host the session on that platform and invite Aquarium staff to the meeting.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice

We cannot successfully change the way humanity cares for our ocean planet without connecting with and appreciating the broad diversity of identities, backgrounds, experiences and perspectives that make our community unique.
