Happy World Otter Day! 🐾 May 27 is a day to celebrate these rambunctious creatures, including our very own Tippy, Homer, and Sheldon 🎉 . North American river otters can slow down their heart rate to remain under water 6-8 minutes during dives. River otters are also keystone species for watersheds. Their presence indicates the presence of good, clean water and a healthy habitat. 🌿💧
Meet Neon, a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle that was rescued after accidentally being hooked by a fisherman this past weekend. 🐢Neon was brought into the Stranding Response Program, where the hook was removed. A follow-up exam was conducted, after which our vet cleared Neon for release. Neon was released this morning & is doing great! Thank you to the fishing group who called us & our Stranding Response team. 👏👏 . As the summer season approaches, here are a few reminders if you come across a hooked sea turtle: 1- Call the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program 757-385-7575 2- Do not release the turtle or try to remove the hook yourself 3- Once the turtle is in hand, cut the line with at least 2 feet of line still attached 4- Wait for the Stranding Response Team for next steps
Home of the free, because of the brave. On this Memorial Day & every day- we honor, remember & thank you for your service & ultimate sacrifice. ❤️🤍💙

Did we do this avatar thing right? 😂🤣 But really, we've taken all of the submitted names and narrowed it down to four. Time to vote and tell us what this ray should be named! Vote at the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5WRCGRY Voting closes on Monday, May 25 at 11:59pm!
Time for Who Am I Wednesday! Can you identify this up close picture of one of our animals? Drop your best guess in the comments (and see if you're right tomorrow, when we put the answer in the comments)!

Safe travels, Hootie! Thank you to the Strand and Response Team!

Hootie! If only there were a few blowfish in there too!😅

Good job, everyone. 👍

❤️👍

We are reopening soon… just taking the (sea) turtle approach vs. the hare 😉🐢(how is there not a sea turtle emoji yet?)

Virginia will move into Phase II starting June 5, however the Virginia Aquarium is still making the final preparations needed to reopen, including additional measures to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests in light of the pandemic. These steps take time to implement. We appreciate your understanding and will keep you all updated with details regarding when we will be welcoming guests back.

Stay tuned to our social media channels for details on our reopening date for our Members and guests. We can’t wait to welcome you back soon!

I know Sheldon and company got some extra special treats today? I miss the otters and will be glad once they can be seen again. They never fail to make me laugh with their antics!❤️
