The FTC requires me to let you know I’m a SEA LIFE Michigan aquarium ambassador and that I receive free admission to the aquarium, press events and exclusive sneak peeks. All opinions remain my own.
SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium –in Auburn Hills, MI– welcomed one Nurse shark, three Blacknose sharks and two Bonnethead sharks to their new home today. The enthusiastic winners of the Young Environmentalist contest—aged 8 to 12—stood by to cheer them on.
The creatures arrived in a transport truck, and after some testing and preparation, were rushed inside via stretchers by trained aquarists. The sharks were then placed into a small, connected acclimation tank before swimming off into the main ocean tank.
Many of the other creatures, including Moray eels, seahorses and stingray, have already been delivered to the aquarium, with the remaining inhabitants arriving within the next week.
SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium will feature 22 tanks in highly themed, engaging exhibits, including a 180-degree ocean tunnel and interactive touchpools. SEA LIFE’s conservation messaging will be included throughout, inspiring guests to take an active role in protecting the world’s oceans and sea creatures.
The attraction opens to the public at noon on Jan. 29. I will have an exclusive sneak peek for you after I visit the aquarium on the 22nd.
