Loveland Living Planet Aquarium

The biggest Aquarium topic on all of our minds right now is the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium being built in Draper, Utah, and opening in December of 2013.  To help keep you up-to-date on this exciting development, this blog will focus on news from the construction site and preparations being made for moving day from now until the grand opening.

A successful groundbreaking ceremony was held in October 2012.  Jim Loveland, generous contributor and board member, and Brent Andersen, founder and CEO, along with several other dignitaries were the first to dig into the new site.

Now, construction is well underway.  Time-lapse cameras were installed at the site to capture the progress – check out some of the footage below.
