“(…) corals are on the front line in the face of global warming and its corollaries, including the acidification of the oceans. They are on the front line to the point of being directly threatened. Today, the question is no longer whether these extraordinary ecosystems will be damaged but to what extent they will be. It is also to anticipate what will be irreparably lost of their diversity and to assess the consequences for tropical countries as for all of humanity. It is above all to understand what we can do to limit the damage.” HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco

This summer, dive into the Great Barrier Reef at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, to meet its most emblematic species! The Oceanographic Institute of Monaco has announced a new immersive exhibit all about the Great Barrier Reef “Immersion”.

To begin, enter the Immersion airlock, where your dive guide will prepare your for the journey ahead, and tell you about the species you are about to encounter. And, all encounters are made possible in just one dive from humpback whales to carpet sharks and barracudas to fluorescent corals.

Before your eyes, incredible biodiversity is revealed, sheltered in the heart of one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral ecosystem on the planet. Discover the richness of life on the Great Barrier Reef from dawn until night. This immersive experience gives visitors the chance to explore and interact with species as though you were truly diving on the Great Barrier Reef!

At the end of the virtual dive, visitors will discover that coral reefs are at risk and there is a very real need to act to protect and preserve them.
