The “Coral Reefs: Secret Cities of the Sea” exhibit would run from end March to 13 September 2015.

The Museum’s website states that “coral reefs are home to almost a quarter of all marine species” and that the new exhibition will introduce people to the inhabitants of these richly diverse habitats.

The exhibition will aim to educate visitors on why reefs are so important and how their future is being secured with the help of institutions like London’s Natural History Museum.

Visitors will be able to encounter 200 strange and beautiful specimens from collections including the gigantic Turbinaria coral, the venomous blue-ringed octopus and coral collected by Charles Darwin.
