Shop Our Online Collection 

For the first time ever, Birch Aquarium’s Gift Shop is going digital with an exclusive capsule collection of Weedy Seadragon merchandise.

Created in honor of the first birthdays of our two baby Weedy Seadragons, the limited-edition items are available online only for a short period of time. Proceeds from sales support the care and conservation of Birch Aquarium’s animals, so we can continue to help fragile species like these thrive, even during these difficult times.
