RWS Christmas 2020 – A SEAASON of Rediscovery at S.E.A. Aquarium (7 Nov 2020 to 5 Jan 2021)
A brand-new underwater experience, boosted with refreshed educational content and immersive audio-visual experiences, awaits you at one of the world’s largest aquariums. Complementing the expanded zone unveiled earlier this month featuring new tropical rainforest, intertidal coastal terrains and the underwater cities of coral reefs, S.E.A. Aquarium is now re-zoned into nine distinct areas, introducing keen learners to our over 100,000 marine animals.
Zone highlights include:
- School of Fish: Test and expand your marine knowledge with 25 eye-opening facts!
- Ocean Diversity: Are all animals that live in the ocean, fish? Challenge your pre-conceived notions with other animal groups living in the ocean.
- Open Ocean Habitat: Containing the largest ocean water volume in any aquarium in the world, find out how some animals adapt to thrive in this huge marine ecosystem.
- Quirky Adaptations: Enter the realm of quirky animals and discover how their adaptations ensure their survivability in the deep blue sea.
Our marine animals look a lot like Christmas too! Have you seen the scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp with its distinctive pair of bright red stripes that flank one white stripe running down its back? Imagine snowfall by gazing at the snowflake moray eel which resembles powder snow, albeit in the water; and the pinecone fish, so-named after the woody conifer fruit featured on Christmas trees.
Simply scan the QR code at the habitat’s display screen to glean more information about them. Put your new-found knowledge to the test! Spot the “snowflake” placed at five habitats, take photos of the lightboxes, answer a few simple questions and get an exclusive S.E.A. Aquarium recyclable tote bag in our Gift of Knowledge trail!
Many new photo spots such as the life-sized Gifts Galore Gift Box, Coral-ful Wall and a spectacular Christmas tree, upcycled from used crate boxes offer opportunities for the ‘gram.
