The Wildlife Conservation Society says it plans to partially reopen the storm-damaged New York Aquarium in the late spring.
 
The aquarium says the loss of its marine life during Sandy was minimal. But damage to its infrastructure was significant.

President and CEO Cristian Samper says the WCS is proud to share the city's "comeback spirit.''
