A New and Improved Accessible Touch Tank
When the team at the Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve reached out about wanting to upgrade their touch tank, Tenji was more than up for the challenge. We designed and built a stepped-curved tank, allowing for access of all ages and heights to enjoy the wonderful animals at the Estuarine Reserve. Tenji took advantage of a preexisting closet to fit a robust life support system in a tight space.
After the touch tank arrived, we returned to install some backup equipment as well as a monitoring and control system. The wood paneling on the front of the tank tied its design into the rest of the Reserve space. We received extremely positive feedback from the Padilla Bay team, including how the touch tank has “changed the whole energy of the room, and the length visitors stay in the aquarium room has increased substantially”.
