"Students know how to formulate critical questions and generalize from their findings. They are able to identify the big, essential questions about their learning. They know how to collaborate and cooperate with each other."

Support Fun Fact

Our trained and devoted volunteers give some 25,000 hours of their time each year to the Aquarium, helping to share the "WOW!" at such exhibits as the seals, Touch Tank and Shark & Ray Touch Pool. They’re great!

Fish for Our Future

fish wall updatedSecure your spot in "Our Sound Future" – a new art installation that celebrates the growing school of friends helping to sustain The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk through the years ahead!

Contribute at one of three levels and your fish will be added to the shimmering installation, which will be near the Aquarium’s large shark exhibit.

 

Sound Champion: $3000 for a 12-inch plaque 

Sound Advocate: $300 for an 8-inch plaque 

Sound Supporter: $50 for a 4-inch plaque

 

Because your fish can have an inscription, the installation is a great way to declare your love for the Aquarium and our efforts for marine education and environmental stewardship. You decide what your fish says:  your name(s) or perhaps an in memoriam.

The installation will be revealed in Summer 2018 and continually grow as we welcome more and more supporters, advocates and champions.

We hope you’ll help fill our net, ensure our sustainable bounty, and join this lasting creation.
