The newly renovated Rivers to the Sea exhibit showcases 100 new species and 12 new aquariums. The exhibit serves to show how connected everyone is to our oceans, and how people have an impact on ocean environments far away.

Rivers to the Sea highlights species from areas such as the Gulf of Mexico, the Marshall Islands, and more! It features species such as lionfish, seahorses, and octopus. Also, enjoy the tide pool touch tank!

The exhibit also includes mural and sculpture work done by local artist Adam Eikamp.
