The Living Sea

The Living Sea has concluded its run at the Science Museum of Minnesota.

The Living SeaIn The Living Sea, you'll journey to the breathtaking Central Pacific islands of Palau to see the spectacular, colorful sea life that lives there. Learn how Earth's waters are linked by currents, tides, and water cycles. Surf thundering waves in Hawaii and ride in a Coast Guard Rescue boat with cadets training to save lives at Cape Disappointment, home to some of the roughest surf in the world. And travel 3,000 feet into the ocean depths to view strange creatures that live where sunlight never penetrates.

The Living Sea explores our relationship with our complex and fragile ocean environment. The ocean covers more than 70% of the earth's surface, with an average depth of two miles. We depend on the sea to produce most of our planet's oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. In fact, we are as dependent on the health of the ocean as the fish that swim in it.

Join us for a memorable deep sea voyage to witness parallels between scientists who are seeking to learn about the sea and the islanders of Palau, with their traditions of respect for the life-giving waters and the reefs which provide their sustenance.

All of us, the world over, are dependent upon the health of the sea. As Palauan guide Francis Toribiong observes, "We are all islanders."

Run Time: 40 minutes
