Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium voted “America’s Number One Best New Attraction”
Bass Pro Shops founder, Johnny Morris, says “Thank You” to all CFM members who took the time to vote for Wonders of Wildlife as “America’s Number One Best New Attraction.”
Nearly ten years in the making and unprecedented in scale and scope, Wonders of Wildlife is the most important natural history museum to open in America in more than a century. Larger than the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the not-for-profit conservation attraction serves as an inspirational tribute to the adventurers, explorers, outdoorsmen and conservationists who helped discover, develop and preserve the nation we love. The Museum is located in the heartland of America where half of the nation’s population lives within a day’s drive.
“We are honored that Wonders of Wildlife has been voted America’s Number One Best New Attraction,” said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, noted conservationist and visionary behind Wonders of Wildlife. “This recognition is a tribute to hunters, anglers and conservationists everywhere whose significant contributions have been protecting our nation’s fish and wildlife for generations. We are deeply grateful to all of the remarkably talented artists, craftsmen and women, leading conservation organizations, biologists and other supporters who contributed to the creation of this facility, and to each and every person that voted – thank you!”
Collin O’Mara, CEO of the National Wildlife Federation said, “”Johnny’s spectacular Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield is designed to introduce millions of families to the full diversity of wildlife with which we are blessed. Simply put, Wonders of Wildlife is the most important facility in America promoting the future of fish and wildlife.”
