The Jerusalem Biblical zoo is the most popular tourist attraction. In 2002, after expanding its hectare campus by 14 hectares, an idea to build an aquarium was hatched. It intends to conserve the Israel aquatic habitat. The Gottesman Family Israel aquarium addresses this by focusing on research, education, and conservation.

Why Visit Gottesman Family Aquarium

Israel's aquatic life faces an uncertain future. The challenges include overfishing and pollution in the Mediterranean Sea. Human activities and global warming result in the loss of coral reefs in the Red Sea. The Dead Sea is also shrinking in size.

Unless something is done, local species may go extinct. As such, there’s an urgent need for public awareness, research, and conservation programs to address this challenge at a local level.
