My friend Val works for the aquarium which is in a competition to receive needed grant funds. Please, if you can take a couple minutes register (you can do it through Facebook) and vote for this very cool aquarium.
Here is some more about it:
The Roundhouse Aquarium is operated by the non-profit organization, Oceanographic Teaching Stations, who recently celebrated 30 years of ocean education. Located at the end of Manhattan Beach pier, the Roundhouse is dedicated to teaching visitors and students about the oceans and environment. Our mission is to promote the public study of, and interest in, the oceans, tidelands and beaches of Southern California, the marine life therein, and the impact of human populations on that environment.
