Some of the animals that will be in the new aquarium here at the Point Defiance Zoo. Nice to know we are a part of building their new home. ... See MoreSee Less
Green sea turtle brothers, Sunny and Azul, received their first wellness exam at the Zoo, which included a complete physical from head to flipper. These tests provide veterinary staff with a good picture of their overall health and allow staff to monitor and make any changes needed over time. Meet Sunny and Azul at the new Pacific Seas Aquarium - opening this summer!
We are so excited for the new Pacific Seas Aquarium to open this summer! The new aquarium will include a 250,000-gallon warm-water exhibit called Baja Bay, which will be home to scalloped hammerhead sharks, green sea turtles and spotted eagle rays. The Northwest Waters exhibit will highlight Pacific Northwest marine life - replacing the 55-year-old North Pacific Aquarium community tank. Coastal Kelp Forest will feature giant strands of kelp similar to the kelp forests found off the coast of Southern California. The Tidal Touch Zone will offer an engaging space of hands-on and up-close experiences for people of all ages - replacing the Marine Discovery Center.
