The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco has just inaugurated a new area – “A Night Dive in Search of Fluorescent Coral!”.

It’s a species that is often forgotten – coral is discreet and static and inhabits the seabed, serving both as an elegant setting for this world of silence and a natural habitat for micro-algae.

Coral possesses a surprising ability – it is at the origin of some very mysterious luminous phenomena … Many species of coral are able to fluoresce, thus putting on an amazing multicolored show for the marine life that surrounds them!

To enable as many people as possible to see and enjoy this almost unreal spectacle, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco has just opened a new discovery area, where visitors of all ages can take a night-time dive without getting wet and see the fluorescent corals.
