The role of our team here at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has been flipped on its head since COVID-19 has forced the closure of our aquarium.

Gone are specialist animal departments, hourly animal talks, guest experiences and more. Rather, we’ve seen the rise of the virtual aquarium where live-streams have become a regular task, and rotating daily teams means aquarists all now care for all the animals in the aquarium.

It’s a jam-packed day, every day, so go behind-the-scenes and see the daily tasks our aquarium team complete to keep our attraction – and our animals – in tip top shape.
