Lend your voice to help save our beloved orcas

We have all been gripped by the heartbreaking images of our Southern resident orca Tahlequah (also known as J35) as she mourned the death of her calf this past week. At the Seattle Aquarium we are all grieving along with the rest of the world. And though we are sad, we are viewing this as a wakeup call around the health of the Salish Sea and our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment.

Plankton Labs Are Back!

Plankton Labs Are Back!

Do you remember the totally cool plankton labs the Aquarium offered last summer? They're back! Come explore the world of plankton with a hands-on experience at the Seattle Aquarium. From collecting these organisms during a plankton tow to identifying them with a microscope in our lab, there’s never a dull moment.
