ABQ BioPark showcases animals and plant life from New Mexico and beyond with a zoo, an aquarium, and a botanical garden. The Rio Grande Zoo—the most historical of the three as it dates back to 1927—features animals from Asia, Australia, Africa, and Indonesia in a 64-acre space. Seals and sea lions swim in plain sight of passersby, jaguars and Mexican wolves prowl the premises, and komodo dragons look for thatched-roof huts to burn down with their fiery breath.

Whereas the zoo introduces visitors to animals from around the world, the Albuquerque Aquarium focuses on what's local. Its exhibits trace the geography of the Rio Grande from shallow-water areas to its entry into the Gulf of Mexico. Visitors can spy on the sea life inhabiting an artificial coral reef or peer through a 38-foot viewing window at the aquarium's centerpiece 285,000-gallon shark tank.

Situated directly on the river, the Rio Grande Botanic Garden has even more water than the shark tank but without any hammerheads swimming in it. Instead, its 52 acres are populated with a butterfly pavilion, a Japanese garden, and a heritage farm. A huge dragon statue welcomes families into the Fantasy Garden, a castle full of giant-sized ants to ride and massive pumpkins to climb inside. At the north end of the grounds, the 10-acre heritage farm features an apple orchard and field crops as well as an adobe animal barn that's home to Percheron draft horses, Churro sheep, Alpine goats, and Dominique chickens.

Long before he was head coach at New Mexico Diving Academy, Abel Sanchez was busy collecting medals and accolades on the competition circuit. A two-time United States silver medalist in 2000, Abel used his success as a springboard into the head coaching position of the women's diving team at the University of New Mexico.

At New Mexico Diving Academy, though, Abel and his staff fine-tune the fins of much-younger divers, teaching students as young as 7 how to navigate the twists and turns of a successful dive. They help even the most inexperienced students learn the basics while emphasizing proper safety measures, such as not filling up on food or marbles before practice. The academy's efforts have propelled students into a number of competitive fields, with alumni taking on rivals at local, regional, and national meets.

Though 10 years of experience have left the staff at Amazing Jumps both older and wiser, they're still kids at heart. They continuously update their inventory of inflatable amusements to keep up with current character trends while staying true to the classic concept of clean, safe fun. Deploying freshly sanitized bounce houses and water slides to partiers in the Albuquerque area, the staff also fuels friendly competition with inflatable boxing rings, foam sumo-wrestling suits, and challenging obstacle courses. Their snow-cone and cotton-candy machines ensure parties reach the state-required sugar quotient, and their dunk tanks help organizations raise money or simply return fish to their natural habitat.
