- Animal Donations
- Under certain circumstances the Aquarium will accept donations of live animals. The decision to accept live animal donations is made at the discretion of the appropriate animal curator and is based upon criteria such as suitability for display in our exhibits, health of the specimens, available space, and other considerations. It is important for the potential donor to understand that any such donations would be made without any conditions or restrictions and that the Aquarium would retain the right to display, house, or transfer the animal to another suitable zoo or aquarium as the staff sees fit.
The Aquarium will not accept any animals that have not been obtained legally, or those for which ownership is prohibited under any federal, state, or local laws.
Animals that are not accepted for donation include freshwater fishes and invertebrates, lobsters (any kind), turtles, venomous reptiles, and animals whose natural range is outside of the Pacific Ocean. This includes fish from the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean and Red Sea areas, as well as birds and reptiles from South America or Africa.
