Behind the Scenes at Moody Gardens

Moody Gardens Aquarium Exhibit

Moody Gardens Aquarium Exhibit

My local aquarium club, MARSHReef, got to take a behind the scenes tour of the Aquarium Pyramid at Moody Gardens. The tour was nice, but nothing new for me since I worked there in college. The display tanks weren’t in the greatest shape, but we have to remember that Moody Gardens and the entire southeast Houston area was devastated by Hurricane Ike about a year and a half ago. In fact, some of the exhibits haven’t even opened back up yet. On the trip, we visited the penguin exhibit, the aquarium’s filtration systems, and pretty much every place off limits to the general public.

All in all though, the trip was fun. I go to meet fellow marine biologists, go a few places I’ve never been before (at this particular facility), and got to hang out with aquarium keeping friends.

We took a ton of pictures, but not all of them turned out that great…and some where just of people, which is boring to look at. But see our gallery below:
