Once again we are combining two celebrations with a single event - our Virtual Turtle Trot!
What are we celebrating?
On June 14, the Virginia Aquarium will celebrate 35 years of being on mission to inspire conservation of the marine environment through education, research, and sustainable practices. On June 16, World Sea Turtle Day, we are recognizing the important work being done to protect the world's threatened sea turtle populations. We hope you will join the celebration, join the fun, and join the mission.
