Coral World Ocean Park in St. Thomas attraction opens aviary

Coral World Ocean Park in St. Thomas, one of the destination's most popular attractions, has opened the Lorikeet Garden, the largest exhibit to be added to Coral World since the park reopened in 1998.

The 1,600-square-foot, walk-through aviary allows parrots to take flight within the enclosed space.

Currently the aviary houses 20 birds, 17 of which are multi-colored rainbow lorikeets, a type of parrot typically found in Australia. Visitors can purchase a cup of nectar to feed the birds, which are sociable and friendly.

Other interactive activities at Coral World include a shark encounter program, designed for close contact with sharks in the Shark Shallows Pool; Sea Trek, which allows visitors to walk along a trail on the sea floor at a depth of 15 feet, thanks to high-tech headgear and a continuous air supply; and snuba, a combination of snorkeling and scuba.
