Education, Conservation and Research


The mission of the Aquarium of Niagara is to broaden the public’s awareness of aquatic ecosystems through innovative and stimulating exhibits, displays and educational and recreational programs that promote conservation and support research.

Our Featured Experiences

Experience a beak-to-nose encounter with our Humboldt penguins. Watch them waddle around, learn more about these fascinating Peruvian birds, and enjoy hands-on interaction!

During your Seal Encounter, you get a behind-the-scenes look at the care and training of our marine mammals and join the trainers on the beach to meet a seal.

Meet Our Rescued Marine Mammals

The Aquarium of Niagara happily opens its doors to rescued marine mammals with all conditions from blindness to chronic seizures to missing flippers. Our mission is to give them a fulfilled second chance at life, while educating the public about the plights aquatic animals face and how we can all work together to help.
