Aquarium of the Pacific to host Explorer Day on Sunday

LONG BEACH – Deep sea explorers and their technology will be on public display Sunday at Aquarium of the Pacific, following a conference for explorers dedicated to studying the planet’s oceans.

“That one is really designed for the public to learn about exploration and why it’s important, why it’s exciting, and to meet some explorers,” Aquarium of the Pacific president Jerry Schubel said.
