The oldest continually operating aquarium in the United States is run by the Wildlife Conservation Society; their mission is to save wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, and education. The aquarium occupies 14 acres of beachfront property and is home to 266 aquatic species. At the Sea Cliffs, you can watch penguins, sea lions, sea otters, seals, and walrus frolic: the best action is at feeding time. The Conservation Hall and Glovers Reef building is home to marine life from Belize, Fiji, and all over the world, including angel fish, eels, rays, and piranhas. The new Ocean Wonders: Sharks! exhibit, will bring hundreds more species, including nurse sharks, to the aquarium when it opens in 2016.
