Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants

Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants

History/Science, For the Family
Guests are invited to dive beneath the surface of the world’s rivers in the new exhibition “Monster Fish: In Search of the Last River Giants,” opening November 10th. Enormous in size and rapidly dwindling in number, these ancient fish play critical roles in their freshwater habitats. Dr. Zeb Hogan, aquatic ecologist, National Geographic Fellow and host of the Nat Geo WILD series “Monster Fish,” has spent nearly two decades searching for and studying the rare, large freshwater fish species profiled in the exhibition. The interactive exhibition will include five extraordinary, life-size sculptures as well as videos and hands-on interactive activities. It takes visitors on a journey to river basins around the world to learn about colossal fish and the people that depend on them. Through detailed maps, sculptures and custom illustrations, the exhibition showcases close to 20 fish species and their diverse freshwater ecosystems. In addition to highlighting the biology of each species, the exhibit depicts the cultural ties between the fish and local people. From mythical tales and storied traditions to threats and conservation efforts, visitors will leave with a greater understanding of the connection between humans and fish. “Monster Fish” will remain open until May 5, 2019.
