Animal Encounters

From perching atop the four-story Giant Ocean Tank and feeding the animals to going behind the scenes of some of our most popular exhibits, Animal Encounters are truly unique experiences your gift recipient won’t soon forget.

Honor and Memorial Donations

For the person who has everything, make an online donation to the Aquarium in their honor. You can also make a tribute gift in memory of an ocean-lover. Your 100% tax-deductible donation on their behalf will help support all our vital education, conservation, and research initiatives to protect the blue planet. For more information, please contact the Development office at 617-226-2622 or giving@neaq.org.

Sponsor a North Atlantic Right Whale

Help protect one of the most critically endangered large whales on Earth through our North Atlantic Right Whale Sponsorship Program. There are fewer than 600 of these magnificent animals alive today, and our Right Whale Research Program is working to help save them. Your sponsorship will directly support the yearly costs of research to protect these species.
