A special announcement from Adventure Aquarium:
I am proud to be able to share news of our plans to completely renovate our outdoor exhibit space in order to make way for an expansive new penguin exhibit. This exhibit, which will take up a much larger footprint than "Penguin Island" is expected to be the largest expansion since Adventure Aquarium first opened our doors in 2005. As an integral first step in the planning process, we have made the decision to permanently relocate our seal colony this fall to the brand newAmerican Trail exhibit at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington D.C.
While our Seal Shores exhibit officially closes October 1, we invite you and your family to visit now through September 30 to help us bid "Bon Voyage" to the seals as they begin their exciting new adventure. During this time, you can participate in additionaly seal programming, including shows, enrichment exercises, and training sessions that allow you the opportunity to speak with biologists to learn more abou the seals and their upcoming journey.
To learn more, visit us online, email email@example.com, or call us directly at 856.365.3300. I also encourage you to follow Adventure Aquarium on Facebook and/or Twitter to access the most current information available.
I am truly excited about the future of outdoor exhibitry here at Adventure Aquarium and look forward to sharing more details with you throughout the New Year.
