Aquariums

Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

If you would like to visit the largest aquarium in the world, head over to Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The Georgia Aquarium is home to the 6.3 million

gallon tank which contains the Ocean Voyager exhibit. This aquarium is also the only aquarium that gives home to whale sharks outside of Asia.

Dubai is home to one of the largest shopping malls on the planet, so it should be no surprise it is also home to one of the largest aquariums on Earth. The Dubai Mall Aquarium has a 2.64 million gallon tank and houses more than 33,000 specimens. It also contains the world’s largest acrylic glass panel.

With more than 45,000 specimens in 500 different marine species, the L’Oceanografic is the largest aquarium in all of Europe. Located in Valencia, Spain, the oceanographic park has nine underwater towers that represent the most symbolic ecosystems on Earth. The park is structured to represent different marine habitats such as the Mediterranean, Arctic and Antarctic oceans, islands, tropical seas, the temperate seas, and the Red sea.

For a unique experience, travel down to Durban, South Africa to visit not just the continent’s largest aquarium, but the entire southern hemisphere: uShaka Marine World. With thirty-two tanks and just under one million gallons of water, the aquarium is constructed to resemble a whip wreck under water. Attached to the aquarium is the famous restaurant, Cargo Hold, which has a large wall to view the many different sharks.

When you’re down under, you have to visit AQWA (Aquarium of Western Australia), Australia’s largest aquarium, and the tenth largest aquarium in the world. Everything in AQWA can be found in Western Australia’s oceans, and everything on display is living - from the complex environments to the coral. AQWA is home to one of the largest living coral reef exhibits in the world. AQWA holds over 4 million liters of water (1.06 million gallons) and is home to over 4,000 fish. You will be able to see ocean life from all stretches of the southern ocean, including the icy waters of the Southern Ocean to the tropical waters of the coral reefs in the Far North. Don’t forget to visit the DANGERzone exhibit; home to Western Australia’s most dangerous marine life.
