Wonders of Wildlife
The latest honor marks the fourth time that the conservation-based museum and aquarium has been nominated for and received national recognition from the USA TODAY Readers’ Choice Awards, having twice been previously honored as “America’s Best Aquarium” as well as “America’s Best New Attraction” in its grand opening year of 2017.
As the world becomes increasingly disconnected from the great outdoors, Wonders of Wildlife celebrates the value of wild places to advance conservation by inspiring families and kids to connect with nature through an immersive journey spanning some of our planet’s wildest habitats.
The 1.5-million-gallon Aquarium Adventure brings visitors face-to-face with more than 800 species of live animals including sharks, rays, jellies, eagles, otters, octopus, eels and black bear plus giant game fish from around the world that belong on every angler’s bucket list. In addition to inspiring guests to get out and discover the outdoors, visitors will gain a better understanding of how anglers and other conservationists are improving marine habitats in local lakes, rivers and streams to the world’s oceans and beyond.
