The Big Tank

ADP_Ocean_Voyager[2009]

This is a view of the Ocean Voyager Habitat at the Georgia Aquarium. This habitat is the largest habitat of its kind in the world and is built to represent the open ocean. It holds 6.3 million gallons of water and was specifically created to house whale sharks. The aquarium currently has four whale sharks on display (you can see one in the photo, top right) and they work alongside several research organizations to study them. Alongside the whale sharks are numerous other species, most of which, are rescues.
