Founded in 1926, the seven-acre Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo is one of the world's oldest aquariums and provides an excellent education in local marine life and animal habitat. The Aquarium showcases more than 200 species of fish and delicate marine invertebrates from local shallow coastal waters, spectacular northern coral reefs and the deep ocean. At the impressive 140,000-gallon North Rock Exhibit, families will see live corals and large predatory fish, including sharks and a black grouper. Two especially popular exhibits house marine turtles and harbor seals. The Zoo displays more than 300 birds, reptiles and mammals from oceanic islands in lush, naturalistic exhibits with coastal walkways and beautiful water vistas. Many of the animals belong to Species Survival Plans (SSP), AZA's captive-breeding programs for endangered creatures. Located between the Aquarium & Zoo, the Bermuda Natural History Museum contains interactive and audio-visual exhibits that provide an insight into Bermuda's geological formation, its habitats and the impact of human life in a small island environment.
