An oceanarium is announced to be built and put into operation on the VVTs territory in Moscow, Russia, during the next year.
The project is planned as an edutainment center, where the oceanarium, a dolphinarium and a pinnipeds theatre will be combined, and open for visitors all year round. The investments to the project are around 2 billion RUR, and its total territory is going to occupy over 9000 m2.
Among live exhibits visitors will be able to see sharks, walruses, giant stingrays, orcas, white whales, sea lions, etc.
Besides pursuing edutainment purposes, the sealife center will also rehabilitate handicapped kids by means of dolphinotherapy – 5 pools are going to be provided for this activity.
