Jellies Invasion is coming!

Published May 08, 2009

Jellies Invasion: Oceans Out of Balance opens in less than a month! As you read last week, our aquarists begin collecting, maintaining and breeding animals months before an exhibit opens. The jellies are being collected from natural habitats and from other institutions around the world. In fact, we just received a shipment of  blue blubbers and lagoon jellies last week from Japan. Take a look at some of the blue blubbers:   The blue blubbers are one of nine species that will be featured in the exhibit. Even after Jellies Invasion opens to the public, the aquarists will continue to grow our collection of jellies. Aquarists are constantly replicating natural habitats, feeding, caring for and breeding the animals so they acclimate and flourish. The ultimate goal of our "jellies lab" is to establish and maintain breeding cultures of jellies so we can provide a variety of specimens for our visitors to see in the exhibit.
