                              Like many other attractions, the Georgia Aquarium has made the decision to close temporarily to protect the public, but the thriving ecosystem that call their space home is doing just that—THRIVING!

                              You can virtually travel to the Indo-Pacific Barrier Reef, or “California” to see the Sea Lions or even “Africa” to hang out with some very cool penguins. You can also make friends with some piranha and jelly fish, and beluga whales or otters from the friendlier set. These are just a few of their incredible exhibits you can explore.

                              Last but certainly not least is the Ocean Voyager Gallery. It was built to house over 50 species in more than 6.3 MILLION gallons of water. You can catch a glimpse of four whale sharks, four manta rays, and thousands of other fish swimming about in this truly massive habitat.
