The natural biotope exhibit contains 15 million litres of real seawater in total, shipped from the North Sea. The Lagoon imitates a rocky sea bay edged by groups of trees.

      The Lagoon was opened in June 1997, the original theming based on a Kwa’kwala native Canadian tribe settlement (house, totem poles around the Lagoon).
