Legends from the Deep - Clearwater Marine Aquarium | Kids Out and About Tampa

Legends from the Deep - Clearwater Marine Aquarium

Legends from the Deep explores the spectacular deep dark undersea world of creatures so strange you would think they are right out of a science fiction movie. In many cases these creatures actually did inspire Hollywood horror flicks. With areas as deep as 35,000 feet and 139.7 million square miles of the earths surface, 80% of the world’s oceans have never been explored. In fact, new species are being discovered every day by scientists all over the world. Legends features many of these animals, how they live, and explores some of the weird, creepy, and amazing habits and features that make them remarkable.

Numerous threatened and endangered species are featured through exhibitory in this multi-media exhibition that highlights living, prehistoric, and mythological creatures that have become legends and folklore. These majestic creatures from the deep evolved unencumbered for millions of years sharing the world’s oceans in harmony with a plethora of life forms. Yet now humans share some of the same habitats, and we are learning that our day-to-day activities are having a dramatic impact on most whale species.

Guests will learn how pollution, entanglement in fishing gear, and vessel strikes are negatively impacting these creatures we love. Most importantly, guests will learn of the rescue and research done by CMA and how there is hope in action. Visitors will learn how they too have a role in affecting change on human behavior and improving the chances of survival for these critically endangered animals
