Animals & Care

At Shedd Aquarium you’ll meet 32,000 animals that will connect you to the living world and inspire you to make a difference.

The health and well-being of the animals is our top priority. Every day of the year, our aquarists, trainers and veterinarians provide them with the best care possible through expertise and passionate dedication. Ask a staff member about one of his or her charges and watch that person’s face light up. Get to know some of our amazing animals better and you’ll see why!
