Coral eye candy

The diversity of life in coral reefs is stunning to say the least. This sampling of species from within the Academy’s coral rearing pods is a taste of what’s to come in the 212,000 gallon Philippine coral reef tank at the new Academy…


The Academy chose to feature a Philippine coral reef because the reef systems in the Philippines are among the most diverse in the world. Despite their global importance, most people on the planet have never seen a living reef. Here’s another creative project bringing coral reefs to people’s attention.
