Watch our Aviary Cam carefully—you never know who'll stroll by.
Look for leg bands on our birds, which help us identify them in our Aviary. Each bird has its own history—most came here injured and can't live in the wild.
See the Aquarium in a whole new light with extended summer hours until 8 p.m. on select weekend dates. Linger at your favorite exhibits after the crowds have gone, and enjoy wine, live music and sustainable bites.
These birds now have their summer breeding plumage, which includes orange bill plates and feet, a white eye "mask" and, of course, golden "tufts" of feathers on the head. Visit our Open Sea wing to see their new look!
Want a preview of our Aviary and other exhibits? Now you can get one with Google Maps Street View. With just a few clicks you can go on a virtual Aquarium visit and stroll inside through our exhibit galleries or outside on our decks—all from the comfort of your computer.
The Aquarium works hard to make a difference in the threatened western snowy plover population. As one of the main rehabilitation sites for shorebirds in northern California, we rescue injured adults, injured chicks and abandoned eggs.
Our standards-based curriculum has been developed to provide educators with easy-to-use, Aquarium-centered science activities for the classroom.
