The coral reef tunnel in Ocean Wonders: Sharks! will have artificial corals that create a beautiful reef-like home for the animals that will live there. The above picture shows a model made by staff from WCS’s Exhibit and Graphic Arts Department. Coral creation starts with a small, six-inch clay-like model like this, followed by a precise process of designing, crafting, and installing life-size pieces into the building. Once complete, our coral reef will be a colorful world filled with replica corals of different kinds and majestic marine life that will amaze all who visit. Photo Credit: Lauren Anker
