[Notice] Updated news regarding Aquarium operation
Aqua Planet Yeosu opens again and Beluga Whale the mascot gets a break.
Aqua Forest reopens for visitors to Aqua Planet Yeosu, starting on June 18th. The aquarium has been temporarily closed since last May 20th for the recovery of the fish animals except the Beluga Whale. The Beluga will have every other Monday off as soon as Aqua Planet opens again.
Aqua Planet is one of the hot places at the Yeosu Expo; and, the Aqua Forest is a centerpiece in the aquarium. While the Aqua Forest has been shut down, the Beluga Whale, the most popular creature of the aquarium, has been unable to take a rest. As more than 25,000 people visit the Beluga every day, the mascot of the Aqua Planet is under stress. To treat animals with consideration, the Aqua Planet Yeosu will give the Beluga days off to help it feel happier and less stressed.
Do not miss a chance to enjoy the natural aquarium and walk through the ‘Aqua Forest’. Let’s meet hundreds of fish species such as the sturgeon, sea dragons and piranhas. Also, please understand and give the Beluga a break.
