“As we reflect on the closure of our DC facility today, we just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their amazing support.”

Back in May we learned of the coming closure at the Commerce Building:

“The collection of more than 1,500 animals will be transitioned to new homes at either National Aquarium, Baltimore, or at other accredited aquariums.

Established in 1873, the National Aquarium, Washington, DC, first opened its doors to visitors in 1885 with a collection of 180 species of fish, reptiles and other aquatic animals.”
