Special exhibition on the coral reef

Hidden just beneath the surface of the ocean, the coral reef teems with life. Coral reefs cover less than 1% of the ocean yet they are home to more than 25% of all its life: millions and millions of fish, crustaceans and molluscs are just some of the many reef-dwellers.

Enjoy the experience of an exhibition that shows off the unbelievable beauty and vulnerability of coral reefs and how important they are to the ocean.
