Jellies "Living Art"
Northern Californias Monterey Bay Aquarium is exploring the relationship between nature and artistic expression with its newest exhibit Jellies: Living Art. This temporary exhibit was designed to bring artistic creation into the underwater realm, and enhance the way people see jellies. Many jellyfish species are highly susceptible to changes in their environment - some have been known to die in large numbers due to pollution. In other instances, jellyfish populations can overrun the environment when an ecosystem becomes unbalanced, taking valuable resources away from other sea creatures.
