Living Planet Aquarium
The Living Planet Aquarium is currently located in Sandy, Utah, and is home to 1250 animals representing 267 species. The public aquarium consists of three main exhibits: Discover Utah, Ocean Explorer, and Journey to South America.
 
The aquarium is planning to move to Draper in 2013.  The ground breaking for their new building is being held on October 24, 2012 from 10:00 am to 12 noon. 

The aquarium will be located at 12033 Lone Peak Parkway.  It will be a world-class facility.  The building will be 130,000 square feet (current building is 4,300).  They are anticipating opening in December of 2013.  Keep posted for more information on the new location and building progress.

The new facility will feature a 4D theater, a banquet Center, wedding locations, party and play center and 350,000 to 400,000 gallons of water. 

The aquarium's education department operates two outreach programs: the Utah Waters Van and the Rainforest Van. The outreach programs visit over 450 elementary schools statewide each year, reaching nearly 50,000 students. Field trip programs for pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade and a teacher professional development program with resources for fourth grade teachers are offered.

The aquarium is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
