Explore Our History
This special exhibit presents more than 80 species from all four corners of the Pacific Ocean.
October 1989In conjunction with the Aquarium's fifth anniversary, the most stunning plants and animals from the depths of the world's largest ocean appear in a special exhibit called Living Treasures of the Pacific. Highlights include damselfish, squarespots, nudibranchs, corals, and the first jellies ever included in a special exhibition. Living Treasures not only throws a spotlight on the Pacific's hidden beauties, but it also sounds a warning about threats to its fragile marine environment.
Generous DonorsAquarium members, businesses and foundations generously support Living Treasures of the Pacific during our first-ever annual giving campaign. More than $87,000 is donated for this special exhibition and for expansion of the Sea Otter Research and Conservation (SORAC) program.
