If you want to get acquainted with some local marine life, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s new Ocean’s Edge exhibits, which open on Memorial Day weekend. “Ocean’s Edge will connect visitors to ocean life and protection of the world’s oceans as never before,” says executive director Julie Packard.
In the new galleries, visitors can view an octopus’s den, walk beneath crashing waves, and stroll amid shorebirds and gliding bat rays in a dramatic transformation of the original aquarium. Exhibit modifications also include improved wheelchair access for visitors with disabilities. Visit www.montereybayaquarium.org for more information.
