                                      Stuck inside? You can still go on a watery adventure. As seen on Animal Planet's THE AQUARIUM, the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the US, is streaming LIVE from Atlanta, Georgia.

                                      Like many other attractions, the Georgia Aquarium has made the decision to close temporarily to protect the public, but the thriving ecosystem that call their space home is doing just that—THRIVING!

                                      You can virtually travel to the Indo-Pacific Barrier Reef, or “California” to see the Sea Lions or even “Africa” to hang out with some very cool penguins. You can also make friends with some piranha and jelly fish, and beluga whales or otters from the friendlier set. These are just a few of their incredible exhibits you can explore.
