CORAL WORLD GROUP
Palma Aquarium belongs to Coral World International; a company founded in the mid 70s by businessman Morris Kahn, and currently presided over by his son Benjamin Kahn.
The Coral World group currently owns 3 other aquariums across the world: The Underwater Observatory in Eilat, Israel, Maui Ocean Center in Hawaii, United States and AQWA in Perth, Australia.
In 2008 the prestigious magazine Time awarded Benjamin Kahn the “Hero of the Environment 2008” award, in recognition of his environmental efforts.
Palma Aquarium, in accordance with its founding company’s conservational philosophy, was conceived as an authentic marine observatory which faithfully recreates the sea’s ecosystems and habitats and the wealth of flora and fauna found in oceans across the world.
With the motto “learning and understanding in order to appreciate and protect”, the aquarium in Mallorca operates with one main objective: to spread awareness, knowledge and admiration for the beauty of the marine world.
