As we pulled up to the Great Lakes Crossings Outlets, it was easy to tell that things are moving along quickly to get ready for the grand opening of SeaLife Michigan later on this month.
On Wednesday morning, six sharks, a few smaller fish, and a whole crew of caretakers left sunny Florida in an unmarked trailer and headed on their way to their new home in frigid Michigan. Luckily for them, even though the temperatures outside are bitter cold, inside it’s like a tropical paradise.
As each shark was brought in, one by one on stretchers, the crowd of kids with their parents cheered! The staff, attentive to their marine creatures, were careful to watch each fish’s movements as they entered the tank to make sure that each and every one of them were healthy and happy after their long trip to their new home.
From where we stood, we could see into the largest tank with a birds eye view. This location will not be open to the public, but will give the Sea Life Michigan staff easy access to the fish for regular check up’s and feedings.
From down below, life is going on as normal. All of the beautiful fish are getting accustomed to their new homes and ready for the public to start visiting and learning from them.
