Some call it Noah's Ark 2017 because it houses almost exclusively endangered or threatened species. This is Aquatis, in Lausanne Switzerland, the largest freshwater aquarium in Europe. Twenty different ecosystems, spread over 46 aquariums, vivariums and terrariums, are built here housing animals from five continents. Visitors can get up and close with many of them, which will ultimately help conservation efforts according to the aquarium. SOUNDBITE: DIRECTOR OF AQUATIS, ANGELIQUE VALLEE-SYGUT SAYING (French) "Actually, we protect what we love and we love what we know. So, the purpose of Aquatis is to make people discover all these species that are not very well known, that a lot of people will discover when they come here." Her hope is every visitor will leave ready to empty their tanks to help the plight of these animals.
