We live in a connected world. This brand-new show produced by our in-house team of visualization experts will have you diving with sea otters, exploring the life forms hidden within soil, and migrating the oceans with whales.

Program Summary

Living networks connect and support life forms large and small—from colonies of tiny microbes and populations of massive whales to ever-expanding human societies.

In the California Academy of Sciences’ original planetarium show Habitat Earth, discover what it means to live in today’s connected world, where biological networks intersect with those we have built. Through stunning visualizations of the natural world, dive below the ocean’s surface to explore the dynamic relationships found in kelp forest ecosystems, dig beneath the forest floor to see how Earth’s tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive, and journey to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks.

Although this show was designed for general adult audiences, the subject matter may be appropriate for upper elementary, middle school, and high school grades.
