“Jammin’ with Jellies” is a new exhibition at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington that combines the mesmerizing movement of various types of jellyfish with ambient instrumental music. The exhibition also includes workshops and recycled object art.
Jellyfish have no bones, no brains, no blood. They catch prey with stinging tentacles, but most are harmless to humans. As the medusae drift through the sea, they help maintain the delicate life balance of the world’s oceans, feasting on zooplankton, small crustaceans and other life forms. Make your way to the North Pacific Aquarium and step into an underwater world of wonder. Be mesmerized by the haunting beauty of billowing bells and flowing tentacles of colorful jellyfish. Explore fantastic jellyfish artwork made from recycled objects, hands-on activities, and more!
