The Deep is a great place to go with the kids so add it to your list of things to do in February half term. See the new look Lagoon of Light in its final stages of construction from Saturday 11th February. Learn more about how this exhibit has been created (before the water is added!) and hear fascinating facts about the fish that will be swimming around. This display will soon be home to hundreds of brightly coloured fish including juvenile zebra sharks who were born and bred at The Deep. Representing where the rainforests meet the reef, the lagoon will reflect the diversity of aquatic life and unique habitats found in and around many of the islands and archipelagos in the Western pacific oceans, from North tropical Queensland to the outer islands of Palau in Micronesia. It will boast amazing new corals and large mangrove trees, which are both very important to the health of a coral reef and its surrounding coastline. They provide an essential nursery ground for a number of species amongst their submerged root system. It will also feature a wave machine that replicates the tidal movements of a true coastal habitat so the animals feel right at home. Find out all about how the exhibit has been created in ‘Meet the Mangroves’ presentations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm and get up close in Touchpool sessions with smaller creatures such as Hermit crabs, Velvet Swimmer crabs, starfish and sea urchins that are native to British shores at half past the hour throughout the day.
