About New York Aquarium
Present on a vast 14 acres right by the sea, the New York Aquarium is home to more than 8000 animals. Located on Coney Island, Brooklyn, the aquarium is the oldest of its kind in the US. Founded in 1896 as Castle Garden in Manhattan, the aquarium was shifted to Coney Island in 1957. Wildlife conservation society is in charge of the property and manages the aquarium as part of the integrated system of four zoos and one aquarium. Being part of the WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), the mission of the aquarium is to save wild places and wildlife, in this case, aquatic species, all the while making a contribution to education and inspiring people to value nature. New York Aquarium currently hosts more than 266 species of aquatic wildlife. With a mission to increase public awareness about issues faced by water bodies and their inhabitants, New York Aquarium hosts multiple events and research initiatives. One of the most popular programs emerging out of the facility is The New York Seascape program, which is designed to restore the healthy populations of the marine species in New York waters.
New York Aquarium offers an enjoyable experience to visitors with playful sea otters, amazing sharks, and much more. The aquarium maintains a streamlined website that users can navigate around easily. It offers a wealth of information on programs, schedule, memberships, tickets, events, and volunteering programs. If you are planning to visit the aquarium, the first and foremost thing to do is to check the schedule. You do not want to show up only to find closed gates.
