BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — There is a lot of enthusiasm on Boston's Waterfront now that the New England Aquarium has reopened its doors.
Vikki Spruill is the CEO and President of the New England Aquarium. She spoke to WBZ-TV about the aquarium's reopening.
"Life goes on inside the walls of the New England Aquarium," Spruill said. "We are so excited to be welcoming our visitors back."
Spruill said her staff has continued to care for the 20,000 animals during the pandemic.

"All our live exhibits, with very few exceptions, will be open," Remick said.
