Oceanogrāfic closed for major revamp until next month

VALENCIA'S futuristic Oceanogrāfic – the largest aquarium in Spain – is shut for refurbishment until Friday, February 12.

Its management company, Avanqua, has announced an investment of €9 million over the course of 2016 in a major overhaul of the sea-life museum, which features thousands of species living in pseudo-natural conditions reflecting the world's main aquatic habitats.

Full details of the facelift are not yet known, but will be announced next Monday (January 11), although Avanqua's chairwoman Celia Calabuig and the Oceanogrāfic's director-general Juan José de Torres say the centre's new look will involve 'substantial' works.

Over the last few months, a multidisciplinary team of vets and biologists have been working closely with senior staff to ensure quality of life of all water creatures living at the Oceanogrāfic is 'maintained in full', says Avanqua, since this is the main purpose of the centre's work.

As well as allowing members of the public to admire and learn more about the different types of flora and fauna in residence, the Oceanogrāfic is actively involved in preserving sea life, nursing injured creatures such as turtles and dolphins back to health before releasing them into the wild again.

Not only is the aquarium itself being given a facelift, but its website now has a brand-new look – better imaging and ease of use, especially for buying tickets in advance, are some of the upgraded features of Oceanografic.org.

Its social network sites will give regular updates on the works among its other news bulletins.

A call centre has also been set up for the Oceanogrāfic for use by customers and traders alike, or for finding out more information, and can be contacted by ringing 96 047 06 47.
