Expedition Reef

February 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Explore the secrets of the “rainforests of the sea” and embark on an oceanic safari to the world’s most vibrant and endangered marine ecosystems – coral reefs. Discover how corals grow, feed, reproduce, and support life on Earth while facing unprecedented threats from climate change, habitat destruction, and overfishing. Although they line about a third of tropical coastlines, reefs comprise less than one percent of the world’s ocean environments, showing how precious and fragile these systems are. Thousands of tropical fish and colorful corals thrive in one of the largest and deepest indoor displays of living corals. Narrated by Tony Award® winner Lea Salonga this fulldome planetarium show provides an up-close look at a part of our planet many people have never experienced.
