Highlights

Dugong

Dugongs, the elusive sirenian that served as the model for mermaids, are only raised in two aquariums around the world. The only place where the dugong can be found in captivity in Asia is at Toba Aquarium. Our dugong, nicknamed Serena, was discovered and protected in the Philippines in its infancy. Thanks to the loving care from its keepers, Serena grew up rapidly and healthy. Now, over 30 years later, she breaks the world record for the longest time that a Dugong has been cared for in captivity. Come visit Serena, our gentle chubby friend who consumes up to 30 kilograms of seagrasses a day!

Sea Otter

Sea otters are known for their cute expressions and movements filled with intelligence and personality. Sometimes you can witness them swimming rapidly on their backs, sometimes you can see them lounge around floating on the water, and sometimes you can see them cutely groom themselves. During the sea otter feeding times, you can witness the amazing amount of seafood that the sea otter consumes. If you see them during their physical examinations, you might be able to witness the sea otter jump out of the water to a height of almost 140 cm!
