ATLANTA (AP) _ Georgia Aquarium officials announced Tuesday a 110 million dollar expansion that includes adding a dolphin exhibit. The addition will add another 1.3 million gallons of water to the aquarium, which will offer dolphin shows.
The dolphins will come from Marineland in Florida.
In return, Georgia Aquarium officials will make a 1.5 million dollar contribution to Marineland, which is building a marine animal rescue and research center near St. Augustine, Florida.
The aquarium will break ground on the dolphin exhibit this summer. Officials expect it to open by the end of 2010.
