A Clear View
Window cleaner, or space walker? One of our dive staff keeps things clean as a few thousand sardines watch in our popular sardine "roundabout" in the Open Sea wing. Did you know that we have close to 100 volunteer divers? They help maintain all of the exhibits and assist with feeding shows. We couldn't do it without them!
As seen here, sardines in a school move together as one, just like synchronized swimmers. This communal lifestyle is good for these small fish in the wild. When predators come near, there's safety in numbers.
