North Carolina Aquarium is located at Fort Fisher and they’re inviting us to come for the corals and stay for the otters, alligators, and turtles. This is wonderful to see because many of the world’s reefs have been destroyed or severely damaged by water pollution. Also depleted because of overfishing and destructive fishing practices, disease, global climate change, and ship groundings. This exhibit is fun and educational for kids to see and learn more.
