Yellow tangs are just one species of fish you’ll see swimming in our Pacific Coral Reef exhibit!

Home to more than 60 species, this vibrant exhibit shows viewers the complex system of a true living coral reef. Brightly colored tangs and clownfish dart through the water as hermit crabs and snails move slowly along the sea floor.

The hope in offering this live feed is to both share the beauty of these fragile ecosystems and inspire others to help protect them!
