Birch Aquarium – San Diego
San Diego is known for more than just its famous zoo. It also hosts the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, the University of Southern California, and the Birch Aquarium – all of which are located within sight of each other. What you get is world-leading research being showcased by the Birch Aquarium. However, their exhibits are just the tip of the iceberg. Look behind the super-sized aquarium installations and learn about their breeding program to save Sea Dragons, how they are rescuing and rehabilitating sea turtles, or lay your hands on their extensive shark jaw collection, and so much more.
