CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Aquarium will be hosting virtual events this week where you and your family can learn about various ocean dwellers from the comfort of your own home.

The Virtual Shark Exhibit Encounter will start from June 1st and continue through the end of July. This exhibit will let you and your family learn about how the Greater Cleveland Aquarium cares for a wide range of species inside its 230,000-gallon shark exhibit. The exhibition will also allow you and the family to learn about various animal adaptations in the ocean and where some of the fishes fit in the food chain.

The Virtual Stingray and Coastal Encounter will be available throughout June and July. This online exhibition will allow virtual visitors to see the aquarium’s stingrays up close as they serenely swim by while learning about their adaptations and life history. Afterward, guests can take a virtual tour around the Aquarium’s Coastal Boardwalk Gallery to greet other sea critters such as the giant Pacific octopi, seahorses, moon jellies, and much more.

Starting from June 8th, the Virtual Freshwater Exhibits Encounter will also be available for online visitors. In this exhibition, you can take a live, online trip through the aquarium’s freshwater galleries to learn about freshwater fish native to Ohio, Asia, Indonesia, and South America— including catfish, gar, turtles, birds and many others.

All the programs will take place online. Advance paid registration is required to participate. The aquarium will email a Zoom link to participants before the program starts.
