Placing third in USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Award leaves The Florida Aquarium ecstatic.
“To be nationally recognized in the top three is both exciting and humbling in view of the other world-class aquariums that were in consideration. We want to thank everyone in Tampa Bay, Florida and the nation for their overwhelming support,” says Roger Germann, President, and CEO of The Florida Aquarium.
Being nominated with 19 other outstanding aquariums for their accomplishments of high-quality exhibits, offering great visitor experiences, and going above and beyond in conservation efforts is quite the honor.
With the nominees selected by a panel of experts, the top 10 winners were determined via online voting that took place the whole month of April.
“For 23 years our aquarium friends and fans have allowed us to advance ocean conservation through community collaboration, education and entertainment, as well as rolling up our sleeves to save endangered animals through our conservation and research efforts,” says Germann, “This vote further signifies we’re doing our part to protect and restore our blue planet for future generations.”
