What is Blue Zoo?

Blue Zoo is a small, for-income aquarium chain that opened it first place in Spokane, Washington, in 2019. Founder Wes Haws stated he acquired the idea for Blue Zoo as he whiled away the times observing a fish tank when recovering from an axe assault he endured throughout an African home developing venture in 2010, in accordance to the Blue Zoo website. It says the purpose of the corporation is to teach people today and instruct kids about the worth of maritime conservation.
