Shedd Aquarium Temporarily Closes But Will Post Cute Animal Pics Requested By Twitter Followers

While the aquarium is closing temporarily, Shedd still wants to share animal encounters with us.

The Shedd Aquarium announced that it will be closing its doors for two weeks in response to the coronavirus pandemic. While Chicagoans won’t be able to visit the aquarium’s cute underwater critters right now, Shedd is asking its Twitter followers to tweet requests for animal encounters. How thoughtful!

All events at the Shedd between March 13 and March 29 have either been canceled or postponed in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus that was declared a pandemic earlier this week. In the meantime, you can enjoy all the underwater excitement and education the aquarium has to offer from the comfort of your own home!

People are already tweeting in their suggestions like dolphins, snapping turtles, sandworms, belugas and more. You can tweet your suggestion by replying to the Shedd’s tweet above. You can also find adorable animal encounters on the aquarium’s Instagram account!
