Animal Response Team Press Room

Welcome to Shedd Aquarium’s Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Online Newsroom. Our public relations team is available to assist members of the media with everything from facts and information to interviews and multimedia assets. Please let us know how we may be of assistance.  

Shedd Aquarium’s new Animal Response Team is comprised of expert staff dedicated to responding and providing critical support for animals in times of crisis while focusing on four core areas - rescue, rehabilitation, release and rehome for the past five decades. These core areas emphasize responding and providing support in times of emergency, nursing animals back to health, returning animals back to their environments or providing a home for those that are deemed non-releasable by wildlife officials. By educating every visitor at the Aquarium – past, present, and future – we can help the world understand the good Shedd’s Animal Response Team and global partners do.
