Know Before You Go
The coral in this exhibit was handmade and painted by Aquarium artists. The habitat inside is so accurate that it can be hard to tell it isn’t real!
- Aquarium educators are often present at this exhibit to provide in-depth information about the Indo-Pacific coral reef, animals that live there, and conservation. Feel free to ask them if you have any questions!

Some of the Most Fascinating Neighborhoods in the Ocean
Coral reefs are critical components of ocean health. While they cover less than 1% of the ocean floor, coral reefs support more than 25% of marine life. Coral reef communities found in the Indo-Pacific are more diverse and complex than anywhere else in the world!
Help Coral Reefs, No Matter Where You Live
Coral reefs are rapidly disappearing worldwide due to climate change and other human impacts, which could cause dire consequences for marine animals and humans alike. Coral reefs have the best chance to adapt if humans slow climate change, so taking environmentally friendly action in your community can have positive impacts reaching as far as the Indo-Pacific Coral Reefs.
