Global Passport

Explore the world in one amazing place!

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.

SEPTEMBER: Antarctica

This month, we’re exploring the continent of Antarctica! Antarctica is the fifth largest continent by size on the planet and – while known as the coldest place on Earth – is home to the world’s largest desert.

These animals can be found in Antarctica – and also right here at the Aquarium! Look for them in the Ocean Journey building and then catch a screening of Antarctica 3D at IMAX to learn about even more creatures that call this continent home.
