The historic Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport, Mississippi (shown from an aerial view), was almost completely destroyed when Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005.

Opened in 1956, the oceanarium bills itself as the second oldest marine life exhibition facility in the U.S. Until the storm hit, the oceanarium was home to 14 dolphins, 27 sea lions, and 25 exotic birds.
