Global Passport

Explore the world in one amazing place!

Every day, the Tennessee Aquarium showcases thousands of animals from nearly every habitat on Earth. Beginning in March, the Aquarium will kick off Global Passport, a yearlong celebration of the amazing natural wonders found on each continent – viewable without ever leaving the Chattanooga riverfront!

Aquarium at Home

Before or after departing on your round-the-world adventure, you can gain additional insights about the animals you’ll encounter through the Aquarium’s social media channels, which will host a steady stream of behind-the-scenes videos and live-streamed keeper chats centered on each month’s featured continent.

AUGUST: Europe

This month, we’re exploring the continent of Europe! Europe is the second smallest continent by size on the planet and is made up of habitats ranging from Alpine regions and Arctic tundras to grasslands and coastal areas. The Volga River — the longest river in Europe — is featured in our Rivers of the World gallery (on Level 2).

These animals can be found in and around Europe – and also right here at the Aquarium! Look for these and more European species as you tour both buildings.
