Deepen your understanding of ocean life and aquatic systems at S.E.A. Aquarium’s two new experiences – VibranSEA and the Aquarist Lab.
VibranSEA will offer greater insight into our oceans through art, science and educational displays. Comprising four distinct zones, the experience dives into details of the ocean’s depths, marine animals, lively aquatic ecosystems and timely reminders of the threats that jeopardise them.
In Zone One, embark on a Great Descent through the different layers of the ocean, displayed through a changing spectrum of colours that includes the fascinating phenomenon of marine life bioluminescence.
In Zone Two, get On The Inside of marine life anatomy by viewing them through X-ray and ultrasound technologies.
Enter Zone Three, and Secret Seascapes will immerse visitors in a magnificent kelp forest and coral reefs housing a diverse variety of animal inhabitants.
Finally, in Zone Four, VibranSEA showcases Time and Tide, an array of thought-provoking art installations created in collaboration with four local artists. Their works simultaneously revere the seas yet lament their state, urging visitors to reflect on the importance of environmental conservation and sustainable practices.
Over at the Aquarist Lab, visitors have a window, literally, into marine nursery habitats and plankton culture set-ups. It offers an intimate perspective into how aquarists breed, nurture and care for juvenile marine animals, and culture microorganisms.
For a guided tour of the Aquarist Lab and Quarantine Room, a ticket to the Behind-the- Scenes: Aquarist Lab experience is required. Visitors will learn about the process of plankton cultivation and husbandry for select animal species, including sea jellies. They will also tour the Quarantine Room, a facility where the team acclimatises the animals and provides specialised care for them until they are ready to be reintroduced into the main habitats.
