At the Mystic Aquarium

Mystic Aquarium Out of the Blue

Join us in taking A FIRST STEP to plastic-free waters by SKIPPING PLASTIC STRAWS!

Single-use plastic is only in your hands for a moment – but for our aquatic friends, plastic pollution remains in the ocean, rivers, and lakes for hundreds of years – polluting their habitats and endangering their health.

Thankfully, there are simple actions we can take to help protect these incredible animals. And even a tiny change is a step in the right direction.

For the first time in history, 22 aquariums across the country have come together to take action against the plastic pollution that’s endangering the health and habitats of aquatic animals.

We know this is a complex problem that won’t be solved with one single solution, but we have to start somewhere. That’s why we’re asking you join us in taking one small step – a first step – to cleaner waters and healthier animals.

Loggerhead Sea Turtle Release

It has been nearly a month since our aquarist Stephanie Golding traveled more than 700 miles by car and close to 20 miles off shore by boat to release Chester the loggerhead sea turtle.

As part of a collective sea turtle awareness program, Mystic Aquarium adopts a loggerhead sea turtle hatchling from North Carolina, cares for it over the course of a year then releases it back into the ocean when it is older, bigger and better able to fend for itself. Through a partnership that includes other AZA accredited aquariums around the country, we are able to educate the public about sea turtle conservation and help increase the population of this threatened species.
