Watch the hustle and bustle of a coral reef community.
Try to keep up with a bevy of busy tropical fishes as they traverse the corals in our special exhibition, ¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge.
This colorful neighborhood is home to many species of tropical fish, including the Cortez wrasse, scrawled filefish and Cortez angelfish. In the wild, coral reefs are among the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth. Healthy reefs protect nearby shorelines and wetlands, and are home to thousands of species of fishes and corals.
Have some bubbly this New Year's! Celebrate the arrival of 2019 with a sparkling cider toast, sundae bar, photo booth, pajama dance party and more! Plus, small bites and beverages will be available for purchase, including beer, wine and kid-friendly drinks.
The mantis shrimp can control each eye independently—and has depth perception in each eye, too—thanks to its massive array of color receptors divided into three bands. You can gaze back at our mantis shrimp in the coral crawl-through space in our Splash Zone exhibit on your next visit!
Our standards-based curriculum has been developed to provide educators with easy-to-use, Aquarium-centered science activities for the classroom.
