Jellyfish Discovery

Be enchanted by our beautiful Jellyfish in our interactive colour-changing tanks!

Jellyfish are 95% Water!

Blacktip Reef Sharks

Blacktip Reef Sharks are found in warm coastal waters around the world! Black Tips are among the most popular sharks inhabiting the tropical coral reefs of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, because Black Tip Reef Sharks prefer shallow, inshore waters. They are typical in appearance of how humans imagine a shark to look, and can be seen at our big ocean tank!

WOW FACT!

The blacktip reef shark is one of the few species that can leap completely out of the water. This phenomenon, which seems to have an explanation in the shark’s attempt to get rid of any parasites on their body, is called “breaching.”

Adopt a Shark

Sharks are the most misunderstood creatures in the Ocean. Far from being predators, they face extinction from being preyed upon by humans. Each year over 70 million sharks die needlessly due to Shark Finning.
