Aquatic Nursery

Loading

Located between our Flower Gardens and Floating Phantoms galleries lies a unique behind the scenes glimpse into the world of sustainable aquaculture: the Aquatic Nursery. The nursery allows visitors to watch the birth and growth cycles of seahorses, egg casings and juvenile cephalopods and jellies. In addition to teaching visitors about the lifecycles of these creatures, the nursery is also a vehicle to convey the importance of sustainability, because it allows us to maintain our own sustainable animal population.
