Juno beluga whale

We’re celebrating our largest species in a big way during Belugapalooza! Join us for special beluga talks at the Arctic Coast exhibit hosted by our expert trainers. Be sure to make your way to the underwater viewing area and learn how to draw a beluga. Spend the day learning about this remarkable animal, experience what life is like for a beluga and see if you can complete the Beluga Whale Challenge:

  • Help a beluga swim by playing Pin the Tail on the Whale
  • Put on a blubber glove and dip your hand in ice-cold Arctic water
  • Discover if baleen or teeth works best for a beluga’s diet
  • Test your echolocation skills and discover how well you can “see” with your ears
  • Dress like a beluga and see what you’d look like if you were a whale

Once you complete the challenge, you’ll be an honorary beluga expert. And don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a Beluga Encounter!

Take what you learn during Belugapalooza and make a pledge to help protect belugas and their Arctic habitat. Whether you shop for sustainable seafood, reduce or eliminate the use of single-use plastics, or even make a donation to the Aquarium, you’ll do an ocean of good.
