...what it's like to be a diver in the kelp tank?
Play • 14 min

No visit to the California Science Center is complete without a stop at our kelp forest. This exhibit showcases the spectacular diversity of life that coexists off the coast of Southern California. As you peer into the tank you might spot a leopard shark, get a glimpse of a moray eel, or exchange glances with a giant sea bass. If you're especially lucky you might even see… a diver? 

Divers regularly swim in the kelp tank to feed and take care of all of the creatures that live there. Do you ever wonder what it's like to be a diver in the kelp tank?

Erin Shusterman leads the team who takes care of everything that lives in water at the Science Center. She tells us what it's like to dive in the kelp tank and what goes into taking care of all the aquatic animals you might see when you visit.
