Along the way, discover how corals grow, feed, reproduce, and support more than 25 percent of all marine life on Earth, while facing unprecedented threats from climate change, habit destruction, and overfishing.

The Dome illuminates our world with stunning clarity and brilliance on its gigantic 40-foot screen. Adventurers of all ages can hike across majestic parks, climb to the top of a skyscraper, embark on an oceanic safari, and travel the cosmos without leaving their seats.
