Shedd Aquarium  Shedd Aquarium sparks compassion, curiosity and conservation for the aquatic animal world.


Shedd's Animal Response Team, sponsored by Dawn, recently came back from the Alaska SeaLife Center, where they helped provide around-the-clock care for a rescued northern sea otter pup. Frequent feedings help make sure this pup has all the nutrients he needs to develop into a strong young otter. He’s going through a lot of food – and thriving! #ActWithShedd

On Saturday Shedd transformed into an elegant vessel that took guests on a journey to remember. Thank you to the generous attendees of Voyages, our black-tie Gala, for helping to raise $1.9 million for our global animal rescue and rehabilitation efforts! Swipe left to see highlights from the event. #SheddGala

Where can you hang with our 32,000 animals after hours while sipping on cocktails, listening to live jazz and taking in gorgeous fireworks? At Jazzin' at the Shedd! Jazzin' kicks off for the summer tonight. Will we see you there? Share the memories on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #JazzinAtTheShedd!

🐙You will find #cephalopods like #octopuses both in and out of water at Shedd! Swipe left to see the octopus that "lives" in our facade and one of the three octopuses draped over the chandeliers in our entrance hall. What's your favorite architectural detail at Shedd? #CephalopodWeek

Curious about what Shedd is researching? As a part of the Shedd Aquarium Microbiome Project, researchers are seeing how microbiomes, the microscopic life forms that share every habitat, thrive and influence our animals, like dolphins, here at Shedd (Hint: they can actually benefit animal health!). These tiny organisms contributed some of the 139 million strains of DNA analyzed to date.

Think your dad was tough? Imagine if he were a red-bellied piranha! These fish's reputations may outstrip their real-life ferocity, but they do have sharp teeth, and males help guard eggs during breeding season. We hope all the dads out there have a fin-tastic Father's Day!

Shedd's Animal Response Team, sponsored by Dawn, jumped into action recently to help rescue a young beluga stranded in Canada! Our experts collaborated with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, @vanaqua and Canada's Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals to transport the whale to a safe home!

Love Nickel? Then on Sea Turtle Day you should also love Matt Finn, the biologist who rescued an injured Nickel back in 1998! Matt recently made his way to Chicago for a tender reunion with the turtle he saved nearly 20 years ago. His parting thought as they said goodbye? "Everyone can make a difference." #SeaTurtle

Stingrays are known for their expansive migrations – the cownose ray population in the Gulf of Mexico completes the journey from Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula to western Florida each year in schools (or ‘fevers’) of as many as 10,000 rays! When you migrate to Shedd, stop by Stingray Touch and experience these magnificent, tactile creatures for yourself.

Love blue views of #Bahamas waters? Shedd scientists love them too, so much that they've devoted their careers to conserving some of the amazing species that call the Bahamas home, including Nassau grouper, queen #conch and endangered Bahamian #iguanas!

Sea otter grooming involves more than just a good brushing. Sea otters also trap air in their fur when they fluff themselves. Find out why in action at Shedd’s Animal Response Team, sponsored by @Dawn, and the Alaska SeaLife Center on our website.
