"The Ocean Exhibit provides a whole new underwater world. The noise and worries from the outside world tend to disappear as soon as you submerge. Experiencing life below the surface is so calming. The majestic rays gliding in the water, the turtles gently flapping their flippers, the tiny fish nibbling on the sand - everything is completely different and it all offers you a sense of serenity" - Sea Turtle Aquarist, Ayesha Cornelius
