Just Imagine – Jacksonville’s aquarium could be home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring creatures. Picture expansive underwater habitats featuring great white shark pups, mahi mahi and billfish that can be studied while young, and then tagged and released to the wild. Or imagine a gallery of giant crocodilians! The aquarium could be permanent home for non-releasable manatees rehabilitated at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ critical care center. Discover the showy-but-deadly lionfish; see if you can spot leafy sea dragons and other masters of camouflage. Learn how turning off lights at night and other small changes add up collectively to help save sea turtles. Celebrate the wide variety of favorite trophy species of our region’s expert and amateur anglers.
Amaze your family, friends, or business associates by having a special, catered event at the aquarium. Space would be available for meetings, children’s sleepovers, summer camps, parties of all sizes and festivals of all kinds. Imagine the wonder of snoozing next to a three-story wall of fish, or the beauty of a wedding surrounded by majestic sea life. Ocean-themed events are sure to capture everyone’s imagination.
Imagine now – and help us make it a reality.
