Baby Undulate Ray born at Oceanworld.
October 2014

Undulate rays (Raja undulata) are a native Irish ray, that's right like a sting ray but without the sting!  However these beautiful creatures are also Endangered in the wild due to over fishing and fishing practices.  Here in Kerry, Tralee and Dingle Bay however are known to be great breeding ground for rays due to the flat sandy bottom and good food supply.

Here at Dingle Oceanworld we are workingtowards the conservation of this beautiful ray before it is too late.  We are working with other aquariums around the Europe in a breeding programme with the aim to help re populate and protect the genetic diversity of the Undulate Ray.  And what a success so far! As we are proud to announce that our first baby ray has hatched! At the moment she is only 4 cm accross and really does make you marvel at nature!


Beach Clean at Oceanworld

Oceanworld Aquarium undertook a Beach Clean on Saturday 2nd March at Feothanach. 4 members of staff from the aquarium along with some helpers filled 40 bags of rubbish from the small beach which weighed over 280Kgs! 

 This is what the van looked like after the beach clean!

The Polar Penguin Display is open since April 2011 at Oceanworld and is proving a great hit with all our visitors. The exhibition is home to 12 Gentoo Penguins, the natural habitat of these penguins is around the Falkland Islands. The Penguins are kept in as natural an environment as possible with polar air temperatures as well as a constant flow of chilled water and ice. The Penguins are caprive bred, 6 have come from Edinburgh Zoo and the other 6 have come from Oceanopolis Aquarium in France.
