Texas State Aquarium Annual Report 2019

Texas State Aquarium was pleased to be recognized as ranking fourth on the USA Today listing of the best North American aquariums, one of the “Ten Must-See Aquariums in the United States” by TheTravel , one of the “Ten Best Aquariums in the World” by Budget Travel and “Best Local Tourist Attraction” by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times Reader’s Choice Contest. The Caribbean Journey and Dolphin Bay continued to be some of the most popular exhibits, alongside the Aquarium’s unique

opportunities for visitors to feed flamingos and touch stingrays and sharks. To see first-hand what goes into caring for the Aquarium’s over 4,000 animals, visitors took part in Exclusive Encounters. Visitors didn’t just connect with wildlife on their visit, they helped to protect it. In 2019, we launched our “Save More Than Memories” campaign, highlighting how Aquarium guests contribute to wildlife rescue, conservation projects, and animal care by purchasing admission to the Aquarium.

We were thrilled to host Polar Obsession, a National Geographic photography exhibition that features striking images of the world’s Arctic and Antarctic regions by renowned photographer Paul Nicklen. His work captures animal life in these stark, frigid conditions in ways that are rarely caught on camera. polar obsession
