Giant kelp provides food and shelter for a vibrant ecosystem.
Look closely and you'll discover an astonishing diversity of fish and invertebrates swimming here and clinging to the kelp and algae.
Listen to live audio of our Kelp Forest feeding program and watch divers hand-feed sharks, fishes and other animals. If you're lucky, a wolf-eel will emerge to gulp some squid or fish.
We're successfully breeding Pacific seahorses for the first time! Behind the scenes of our ¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge special exhibition, our expert aquarists are hard at work culturing these baby seahorses. The story of how they're doing it is as fascinating as these fantastic fish themselves.
With your help, we can expand our education programs through our new Center for Ocean Education and Leadership. Please join us in inspiring a new generation of ocean leaders.
