$158 million addition all about Sharks opens in New York Aquarium
A new exhibit at the New York Aquarium opened this past weekend, and it is all about sharks. The 57,000 square foot and $158 million addition is called Ocean Wonders: Sharks! The addition comes as much the aquarium is still rebuilding from being hit by hurricane Sandy. The new addition of the aquarium, which is run by the Wildlife Conservation Society, has been in the works for the past 14 years. The goal of the addition was to educate visitors about the vital role sharks play in our oceans.
