The Malta National Aquarium will soon open its doors to the public. It has been two years in construction, and is now nearing its completion, just like Toronto’s.
The aquarium has been on a parallel course of development with Toronto’s http://www.ripleyaquariums.com/canada/ and both their Facebook pages show a long list of comments from an eager public wanting to know when the opening will be, and hoping that it will open soon.
I find it interesting to observe how each aquarium deals with similar intents. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s new website is now streamlined, it’s more in line with The Malta National Aquarium. The two aquariums deliver their key objectives simply and with strong graphic imagery.
Both aquariums will conduct ongoing breeding and conservation programs including ongoing tagging and tracking programs for marine species, and for endangered species together with universities and government agencies.
With corporate social consciousness intact comes the deep reminder of the bottom line. Just like the Malta National Aquarium, www.aquarium.com.mt/visit, the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, http://www.ripleyaquariums.com/canada/will offer itself and its entertainment facilities for retail rental space for functions, food service, and product merchandising.
