Twilight Zone: Deep Reefs Revealed is now open! Visit the Academy in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and step inside a realm known as the twilight zone — a narrow, dimly-lit band of the world’s oceans that are more mysterious to scientists than the surface of the Moon! In this groundbreaking new aquarium exhibit, located within the California Academy of Sciences’ newly updated Coral Reefs of the World gallery, discover the beauty and importance of the little-known reefs that exist between 200 and 500 feet below the ocean’s surface — beyond the range of traditional SCUBA gear, but above the depths typically explored by submersibles.
Meet spectacularly colorful fish and rarely seen invertebrates, learn about the innovative technologies that are enabling Academy scientists to study this new frontier, and discover what you can do to help protect these amazing – and vitally important – ecosystems.
The much-anticipated new Twilight Zone exhibit awaits in the depths of the aquarium. Click for a preview of the exhibit!
