The start of summer may mean barbeques and pool days for humans, but for many of the National Aquarium’s animals, it signifies the time to reproduce.
Considering that coral reefs can take 100,000 to 30 million years to fully develop in the wild, it’s no surprise that the majority of corals found in National Aquarium exhibits are artificial.
The Aquarium is home to an astonishing array of plants and animals. In celebration of National Zookeeper Appreciation Week, we’re introducing you to some of the talented team that keeps our living collection healthy and thriving!
