Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity

Level 2, Centre Block

Walk to the right of the rhino and go straight past the bison and polar bear, walking underneath whales and sharks suspended from the ceiling, to the Coral Reef Tank.

This Coral Reef represents a vital underwater ecosystem in the Indo-Pacific region. It demonstrates the balance between fish and coral, and how they both survive together from the nutrients of a healthy ocean.

Cool Fact

Often mistaken as a plant, the coral is actually an ever-growing colony of invertebrates.
