Flyer of holiday activities
The Aquarium has had a very successful year in 2019 and we look forward to learning and capitalizing on this success in the new year. Overall for the year 2019, total visitor numbers were 316,480. (In 2018: 258,270.)
In both the Succot and Hanukah vacations which took place during this past quarter, the Aquarium ran a number of successful activities related to the holidays.
These included workshops for all the family and information booths with guides. For example, the information booth in Hanukah was called : Eight Days of Hanukah and Eight Octopus Arms.
The Aquarium was delighted to host recently, Oklahoma Aquarium biologists, Amy Alexopoulos, Lead Aquarist of Marine Fishes, and Ann Money, Director of Research and Education, for a week of collaboration and learning. The visit was most successful and the Aquarium team benefited immensely from their insight and experience.
The Aquarium will work to further strengthen the ties between the two institutions and communities. We hope to be able to send more staff for training in Tulsa this coming year as well as work to create a relationship with the local Jewish community centered around the aquariums.
