New $1.5 million jellyfish exhibit coming to SEA LIFE Melbourne
SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium will be opening a new immersive $1.5 million jellyfish exhibit on Thursday 12 December 2019, just in time for the summer school holidays.
The new exhibit, named "Ocean Invaders", will feature three interactive zones pulsing with multiple species of stunning jellyfish.
Descend into the mysterious world of jellyfish at SEA LIFE Melbourne and prepare to be surrounded by thousands of mesmerising, blubbery creatures. Spectacular lighting projections are part of the exhibit, across multiple displays including an incredible transparent sphere filled with swarming jellyfish.
The journey continues to The Jelly Lab where guests can discover strange facts about the jellyfish lifecycle and take a peek behind the scenes as SEA LIFE Melbourne staff tend to the blooms of these graceful (and sometimes dangerous) sea creatures.
The third zone will feature a cylindrical tank filled with oscillating jellyfish and in SEA LIFE Melbourne’s Art Aquarium children can create a digital jellyfish, which will come alive and dance across the Interactive Wonder Wall.
Ocean Invaders aims to educate guests about the causes behind the increasing population – or invasion – of certain species of jellyfish in our oceans and the actions people can take to limit these exponential and sometimes problematic population increases.
SEA LIFE Melbourne will open the new, permanent exhibit Ocean Invaders in December 2019.
