The Georgia Aquarium (Atlanta, Georgia) houses 120,000 animals, representing 500 species, in 8.5 million US gallons (32,000 m3) of marine and fresh water. Opened in 2005, it is the world's largest aquarium. Businessman Bernard Marcus credits his 60th birthday dinner, held at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, with inspiring him to build a great aquarium for Atlanta; his subsequent $250 million donation provided the bulk of the money needed to build and stock the new facility.
The Aquarium's notable specimens include four young whale sharks, four beluga whales, eleven bottlenose dolphins and four manta rays.
