Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located on the inner harbor of Cabrillo Beach, California. The Aquarium functions as a research facility first, and an aquarium second. The focus of the Aquarium is on Southern California sea life. The aquarium has big plans in place and will be launching a 25 million dollar renovation and expansion project. Highlights an 11 million dollar pavilion that will have historic collections, thematic exhibits and robots. 2.5 million will be spent on restoring the aquariums ‘life-support’ system for it’s animals and 3 million will be used for the construction of a new entry way. The Aquarium will be launching its new renovations plan on their 80 year anniversary gala scheduled for April 25, 2015. Let’s hope the event garners  the much needed support and donations to make this exciting renovation a reality. MORE
