Endangered Species Day is May 15th

Endangered Species Day is May 15th
Friday, May 15 marks the 10th anniversary of Endangered Species Day!

Mystic Aquarium invites you to partner with them as they highlight Endangered Species Day! On Friday, May 15 & Saturday, May 16, join in their mission to care for and protect the ocean planet through conservation, education and research.
Mystic Aquarium's dedicated efforts in the areas of conservation and research are helping to bring a number of species back from the brink of extinction including African penguins, Loggerhead Sea Turtles, and more. Plus, with the ever present and growing dangers facing various Beluga whale populations, the ongoing efforts of Mystic Aquarium are imperative as they move forward to create policy and incite environmental change. They are proud to be at the forefront of research on the environment's effect on beluga whale's health.

They have planned a full slate of activities provides an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about the importance of endangered species and how to help protect them.

Visit Mystic Aquarium on Endangered Species Day! Can't make it Friday? They'll be highlighting efforts on the 16th, as well. From 10:00am-2:00pm each day, guests will meet the teams who care for their endangered animals to learn more about research initiatives and conservation efforts around the globe and at home at Mystic Aquarium. Participate in hands-on activities and crafts during the day and learn how you can help change the plight of our endangered animals:

Sign a petition aimed to ban the practice of shark finning in Connecticut.
  • Learn about marine debris and its dangerous effect on the well-being of the ocean.
  • Find out why you should choose sustainable seafood options and how that choice protects marine life.
  • Understand the effects of climate change and how it alters the ocean environment.
We all share the same ocean; let's share the mission to save it for future generations.
