Philippine Coral Reef Exhibit in San Francisco
The underwater beauty and biodiversity of the Philippines waters will be put in the spotlight in a permanent exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, when it opens its doors to the public on Sept. 27.
The Philippine Coral Reef Exhibit, the world's deepest, living coral reef display, will be housed in a 212,000-gallon aquarium tank, and it will feature a variety of corals, fish and other sea creatures that are native to the Philippines. Rene Delos Santos, Philippines Department of Tourism Director in San Francisco, said that the exhibit will give viewers a glimpse of a world that they can experience once they plunge into the clear, warm, tropical waters of the Philippines.
