Indo-Pacific Coral Reef Exhibit
Immerse yourself in all the colors of the sea and meet the residents of one of the ocean’s most happening neighborhoods.
This exhibit showcases the vibrancy and richness of coral reef habitats and helps visitors understand a reef’s vital role in the lives of tropical fish, sea turtles, sharks, and thousands of marine animal species. The Aquarium has been actively involved in studying and protecting coral reefs for many years throughout the Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life. The work includes helping to create one of the largest marine protected areas in the Central Pacific, coral reef monitoring in the Red Sea and Mezo-American Reef off Central America, coral reef restoration programs, and field research on species like sea turtles and sharks that depend on coral reefs.
