This is my last post about my New York trip. The last league of my trip was spent in the only aquarium in New York City, which is also part of the largest network of metropolitan wildlife parks in the US – the New York Aquarium.
The Aquarium is driven by a vision of a world where people understand the critical role the oceans play in human survival and the sensitivity of aquatic resources.
With exhibits featuring over 8,000 animals, the Aquarium offers diversity, superb viewing, and world-renowned scientific expertise that assures a rewarding experience and the knowledge that people can make a difference in the ocean world around them.
Whether you’re getting wrapped up in the tentacles of our jellies in its brand new Alien Stingers exhibit, being awe-struck by our walruses in the rocky coastline of Sea Cliffs, or cheering on the California sea lions during the Aquatheater presentations, you’re always close to some of the world’s most amazing wildlife.
I took a video during the afternoon Dolphin/Sea Lion Show at the New York Aquarium, Brooklyn, NY.
Please visit the NY Aquarium website for more info regarding visiting hours.
