Aquarium of the Americas

I had asked a few days ago if anyone knew the status of the AOA..apparently it is pretty well decimated. Some things survived, the
zoo made it through pretty well. Here is the cnn report

What an absolute shame. I've been to AOA twice. Once in the early 90's when it just opened and again just a couple of years ago to take my kids. It will be missed.

This was the last that I had heard:

It is good to hear that the nearby fire did not apparently get hold of the AoA after all.

I find it very interesting that the seadragons survived when none of the other fish did.

That is so, so sad. Stephen and I had planned on visiting there sometime this year, as well...

I hope they are able to re-build their collection

That is so depressing, I hate what the devastation of this storm has done.
