Marine Alcove

Marine Alcove

Seen from space, our planet’s surface is mostly blue. This is because about 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by the ocean which appears blue. With an average depth of about 4000 metres, the ocean is home to thousands of different marine animals.

The Marine Alcove introduces visitors to our ocean, focusing on interesting facts about its physical environment and the creatures living there.  

You can listen to an underwater symphony of sounds created by the movement of fishes in a tank.

You will be able to see close-ups of corals and aquatic creatures and control an underwater camera inside a tank.  

The Marine Alcove also features some interesting marine life – some very familiar and others rarely seen.
