While you are home caring for your family, you can trust we are caring for ours too. Thank you to those who have reached out during these difficult times to ask about the animals, offer words of encouragement, and tell us you miss us. We miss you too!

Count on us to be here when circumstances allow for a safe reopening of Jennette’s Pier. Our teams continue to adapt, working in new ways, incorporating evolving safety protocols and guidelines to ensure the health of everyone.

We may be closed to visitors but we still celebrate our environment and nature every chance we get. Join us to “Party for the Planet,” virtually. Take a look at all the new and engaging videos created by our teams on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, as well as the NCLearn@Home website.

You can also stay connected by participating in the Naming Contest for our newest exhibit. Pick the best pair of names for the mother and calf pygmy sperm whales now displayed in the pier house.

We look forward to creating new memories, together, soon. Until then, if you are interested in exploring other ways to support the Aquariums and Jennette’s Pier, please visit the North Carolina Aquarium Society website.
