Sea Life london Aquarium is one of the Europe's most visited sea life attraction with huge collection of sea life creatures. Sea life london aquarium is situated right next to the London Eye, just over Westminster Bridge from Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament.
In April 2008, the aquarium was purchased by the world's second-largest attractions operator, Merlin Entertainments for an undisclosed sum. The facility was closed for major refurbishments at a cost of £5 million, which were completed in April 2009. Among the additions included a new underwater tunnel, Shark Walk, revamped Pacific Ocean tank and a complete rerouting of the exhibit, all of which were carried out under the supervision of architects Kay Elliott.
In 2005, the aquarium displayed three robotic fish created by the computer science department at the University of Essex. The fish were designed to be autonomous, swimming around and avoiding obstacles like real fish. Their creator claimed that he was trying to combine "the speed of tuna, acceleration of a pike, and the navigating skills of an eel."
Sea Life London Aquarium, County Hall, South Bank, is involved in several breeding programs including the Cuban crocodile, seahorses, butterfly goodeids, and jellyfish, and works with many conservation organizations including Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, Save Our Seas, Shark Trust, Rainforest Concern, Earth Sea Sky, and South Pacific Projects.
This is my first ever video which I made while travelling to Sea Life Acquirim in London. I started shooting without any intension of making a video and publishing it on my youtube channel. I captured this video hand held using canon 650D mounted with 18-55mm canon lens.
Lastly, I decided why not to give it a shot and publish my first video on sea life london aquarium on my official youtube channel.
