Albuquerque Aquarium and Rio Grande Botanic Garden

A 9min film on the Rio Grande biosystem, from source to mouth, introduces the aquarium-which focuses on Gulf of Mexico habitats, from salt marsh to coral reef and a shark-riddled open ocean. Highlighting the botanic garden are twin climate-controlled conservatories: the aromatic Mediterranean Pavilion and the sere Desert Pavilion. Along with the zoo, these facilities comprise the Albuquerque Biological Park and a Children's Fantasy Garden.
