So last week, I went up to London for two reasons. The Natural History Museum has an exhibit on titled Coral Reefs: Secret Cities of the Sea and the London Aquarium had a conservation evening. I was intrigued by both events, of course. But I was absolutely blown away by the coral reef exhibit.
The Coral Reef exhibit was amazing! In total we spend about two hours in the exhibit looking at coral and fish specimens. Some of the collections on display were collected by Charles Darwin including some of his notebooks from when he was mapping and collecting samples on HMS Beagle. The information was clear and it was laid out in an accessible manner. One of the cool features they had was the Catlin Seaview Survery (http://catlinseaviewsurvey.com/) equipment and screen with the stitched together photos of different locations they have carried out around the world. It was amazing to see and I recommend a trip to anyone that can get there before September.
