Monterey Bay Aquarium Expands Splash Zone

Visitors will experience kelp forest, rocky shore and coral reef habitats in unique ways when Monterey Bay Aquarium’s expanded Splash Zone gallery debuts on March 17, 2008. The gallery will occupy the entire second floor of the Ocean’s Edge wing, with exhibits that encourage families to dive deeper into the diverse habitats of the kelp forest and engage in new activities in the “Coral Reef Kingdom,” “Rough Rocky Shores,” and “Enchanted Kelp Forest” galleries. New animals to the expanded aquarium will include “leafy and weedy” sea dragons, potbellied seahorses, and rare cuttlefish.
