Make a Difference for Animals


Shedd Aquarium has been committed to caring for and conserving threatened and endangered species within our habitats and in the wild for more than 50 years. We can be counted on to take in and care for illegal shipments of rare corals and endangered fishes from our U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service partners, to educate our guests on the 58 species at Shedd that are at risk of disappearing from the planet in our lifetime and to send our Animal Response Team to assist with rescue and rehabilitation efforts halfway around the globe.

You can be an important part of this critical effort—without being an animal expert or a field scientist. Your gift directly supports our expert animal care and collaborative conservation efforts and helps to safeguard the future of the world’s most vulnerable endangered species. 

Thank you for your generosity! Your gift demonstrates your belief in our mission and the work we do each day at Shedd, in the Great Lakes and around the globe. Shedd Aquarium is a 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
