How You Can Help

Even though we are closed, our team continues to provide exceptional care for our animals. We depend on admissions and memberships to pay for these mission-critical operations, and our animal care operations do not stop due to the COVID-19 situation. If you would like to help, you can support us through a donation to the Aquarium’s Annual Fund. To make a donation, please visit here: https://www.virginiaaquarium.com/give/Pages/Make-A-Gift-Form.aspx​
As this situation continues to evolve, we ask that you please follow the CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus. Stay at home, practice social distancing, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, and use hand sanitizer.
