Moody Gardens “Growing Together” Early-Stage Program
Feast your eyes on our enormous 1,000-gallon Caribbean exhibit in this exciting program during a presentation given by one of our very own knowledgeable fish staff! Learn about all of the different species of beautifully colored fish and sharks that call these warm temperature waters home. Seeing these majestic fish up close is mesmerizing and learning about their different adaptations, characteristics and how they all make our ecosystem work is a once in a lifetime experience.
After the presentation, we will walk “underwater” through our breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean tunnel to search for these brightly colored fish and sharks with our fish biologist and volunteers close by to answer any questions. There will be a diver in the water on the other side! We will provide a sheet with the fish listed on it for you to mark which fish you have found. The first person done with their list will win a special prize for two!
