Fall Aquarium News

The iconic seahorse sculpture
The iconic seahorse sculpture

As Fall arrives in Jerusalem, we’re pleased to provide you all with another update:

Some boring but important progress:

  • All life support system equipment has been delivered to the site and installation of these complicated and essential systems has begun.
  • We are expecting delivery of the very large Mediterranean Sea exhibit tank window (a huge optical acrylic panel that will be lowered into place from above by a crane) in the coming two months.
  • The Breeding and Quarantine area is showing significant progress with the installation of the first large fiberglass holding tank.
  • The kitchen and lab facilities are almost complete.

The exciting stuff:

  • Tank theming design implementation is continuing and enormous progress can be seen in both the Red Sea exhibit and the Four Seas of Israel Gallery.
  • Work has begun on the design and content of educational signage in the facility.
  • Our graphic design team has taken the first steps towards branding the facility in terms of a suitable name, logo, etc. – stay tuned for the big unveiling!
  • A generous private donor has donated an iconic seahorse sculpture to the Aquarium entrance plaza – this colorful and distinctive piece will delight visitors for years to come.
  • Most exciting of all, our first animals have been born in an Aquarium in the UK! They are awaiting transportation to Israel once suitable facilities are in place for us to receive them.

Please continue to spread the word about Israel’s first aquarium and an essential educational tool to raise awareness of the challenges facing our aquatic habitats.

Warm regards,

Team Aquarium at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo
