While corals may be known for shallow, sunlit reefs, they also thrive at great depths in the ocean, supporting a variety of animals in the darkness of the deep sea. Come to the Ocean Explorer Theater to chat with museum scientists, watch footage, and see specimens from the deep-sea habitats of Puerto Rico: a treasure trove of coral biodiversity.
Presented by: Dr. Andrea Quattrini, Dr. Jeremy Horowitz, Dr. Santiago Herrera, Luke McCartin, and Annemarie Wood, Department of Invertebrate Zoology, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
