In Monaco, the commitment to corals dates back several decades. Protecting coral reefs is at the crossroads of responding to climate change, preserving biodiversity around the world and protecting the ocean for the benefit of the communities that depend on it. With its new temporary exhibition “Immersion”, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco offers a virtual and interactive dive on the Great Barrier Reef, to meet the emblematic species that inhabit it, and the megafauna. Visitors will be invited to discover the secrets of coral and their superpowers, to discover what are the solutions to preserve this real treasure and finally to marvel at the intimate life of the coral reef.
