This fall at the Aquarium of the Pacific, visit the FROGS: Dazzling and Disappearing exhibit and take advantage of a full slate of special events, including cultural festivals and holidays.

FROGS: Dazzling and Disappearing will remain open through March 2018. Nearly two dozen species in thematic displays, along with educational graphics and immersive sights and sounds will highlight the beauty of and threats to these remarkable animals. The exhibit traces the history of amphibians, details their life cycles, demonstrates the different environments they live in from deserts to rainforests, and highlights the diversity of species and their surprisingly uncertain future. Visit the FROGS exhibit in the Tropical Pacific Gallery on the second floor.

On October 1 the Aquarium will host an evening of traditional Indian music accompanied by an authentic vegetarian dinner of Indian cuisine. Divine Strings will feature three musicians playing meditative music on traditional instruments. The dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. on the rooftop Veranda, and the concert will be performed in the Ocean Theater at 7:00 p.m.

The Aquarium’s fall calendar of cultural festivals includes Moompetam: Native American Festival on September 16 and 17, Baja Splash on September 23 and 24, Southeast Asia Day on September 30, and the Autumn Festival on November 4 and 5. Families can celebrate Halloween together at Scarium of the Pacific on October 14 and 15, and you can help support the Aquarium’s animal care, conservation, and education programs at Sea Fare, our annual fundraiser.

While students return to school this season, adults can pursue continuing education through the Aquarium’s Aquatic Academy, which begins its four-week session on October 25. Explore with experts the role the World Ocean plays in modulating Earth’s climate and how the World Ocean and its ecosystems are responding to climate change. Learn more about the implications of those changes for the future. The Aquarium also offers a year-round Guest Speaker Series. Visit the lectures page to view a full calendar of events. Also, learn more about the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and how this government agency is involved with many services, from weather forecasting to marine mammal rescue at the Aquarium’s annual NOAA Day on November 18.
