Re-discovering Wonder:

Great Lakes Aquarium
2021 and beyond 

What happens when everything shuts down and we still have to care for a building full of animals? We will take a look at what the impacts of the pandemic have been on Great Lakes Aquarium since 2020. The story of the last year is marked by the passion and innovation of our staff and volunteers. I will share stories about the surprising ways we have remained connected to our guests and community in a uncertain time. Even a pandemic hasn’t stopped our creativity.
