California Academy of Sciences: Science @ Home - Diver Doings

It’s hard work keeping our Phillipine Coral Reef in tip-top shape, but Academy divers rise to the challenge every day, completing important tasks like cleaning windows and introducing new fish into the habitat.

(You’ll notice that the divers and fish are moving very fast in the beginning of the video—that’s because we sped the video up to show how long it takes to clean the habitat!)

While you watch this video, think about the three questions below. Share your answers with a friend or family member or just think in your head.

  1. What do you think it’s like to swim with the fish at the Academy?
  2. Can you guess how many fish are in the Philippine Coral Reef habitat?
  3. We sped up the cleaning because it took a really long time! What do you think it’s like to be underwater for a long time?
