The Wildlife Conservation Society, which runs the aquarium in Coney Island, said Tuesday that about half of the aquarium would soon be open to the public, including exhibits in the Main Hall and the outdoor area of Sea Cliffs, which features walrus, sea lions, harbor seals and penguins.

“We know that all efforts to reopen the New York Aquarium are vital to the rebirth of Coney Island,” Cristian Samper, the society’s president, said in a statement. “This partial reopening will ensure that the aquarium can help all of New York City experience a strong comeback from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.”
