In lieu of gifts, 10-year-old Kylie asked her friends and family to donate to a shark fund for her birthday. She raised $850 to adopt a shark as part of the Aquarium’s Adopt an Animal program.

Join Kylie in raising awareness about shark conservation by Adopting a Shark today! With your support we can continue to provide our animals with the best possible care available including food, medical treatment, and housing. Plus, you will receive special benefits, such as:

  • Shark Photo
  • Shark Fact Sheet
  • Adoption Certificate

Adoptions at higher levels receive additional benefits including: a shark plush, aquarium admission tickets, and a behind-the-scenes tour.

Our animals are part of the Aquarium’s living collection and may be transferred to another zoo, aquarium, or other facility. The life expectancy of each animal varies by species and may or may not be replaced with the same species. These decisions are based on the need to enhance a particular exhibit or gallery, for educational purposes, to contribute knowledge of captive animal husbandry, or to provide research opportunities.
