The Marine Ecology Research Centre at Guyana Eco-Resort have a collection of 7 of the 8 Giant Clams of the world. Instead of extinction, under our Giant Clam Restocking Programme, these endangered shell creatures are well on their way to further reproduction. If luck permits, watch them spawn a great multitude. Excite your day with a visit to our maternity tank where pregnant seahorses rest beside mothering bamboo sharks. And if a feast for the eyes ignites you further, take a reach into our "touch" tank where starfish amid other sea creatures await your caresses.
