NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Zoo plans to open an exhibit featuring seahorses in 2016.

The exhibit is sponsored jointly by the zoo and the Elizabeth River Project. The Seahorses of the Living Lafayette project will be part of renovations to the zoo’s exhibit building.

The zoo says the new exhibit is intended to celebrate community-wide progress with restoring the environmental health of the Lafayette branch of the Elizabeth River.

With nearly a mile of shoreline and almost 500,000 visitors a year, the Virginia Zoo is the largest public education facility on the Lafayette branch of the Elizabeth River.

The Virginia Zoo exhibits more than 400 animals on 53 landscaped acres.
