Bay Area LIFE: California Academy of Sciences new exhibit

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Welcome to the Twilight Zone! Discover the California Academy of Sciences new exhibit.

Descend into the twilight zone, a place where sunlight is scarce and divers with traditional scuba gear cannot go. In the narrow band between the light-filled shallow reefs and the pitch-black deep sea, these little-known mesophotic reefs-located 200 to 500 feet beneath the ocean's surface-are home to fascinating and diverse marine life.

Every dive yields surprising discoveries, and in Twilight Zone: Deep Reefs Revealed, you'll see new and rare species, many of which have never been displayed in a public aquarium.

Explore the great unknown alongside our scientists as they uncover what secrets these uncharted places may hold for the survival of the world's coral reefs.

Now on view in the Steinhart Aquarium.
