The Shedd Aquarium known as “The World’s Aquarium,” is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to public education and conservation. Situated on Chicago’s lakefront, Shedd Aquarium is one of the largest indoor aquariums in the world. It is home to 32,000 animals representing more than 1,500 species of fishes, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, birds and mammals from waters around the world. Since its opening in 1930, the aquarium’s mission has been to connect individuals to the living world and inspire them to make a difference. Today, this educational goal has gained urgency as more species acquire endangered status. Shedd Aquarium is committed to a number of projects designed to preserve threatened or endangered aquatic species.
