Project Overview

The Great Lakes Aquarium is planning new exhibit called Shipwrecks Alive! It will provide an in-depth look at the fascinating world of sunken ships and the diverse wildlife ecosystems they attract and sustain. The exhibit will focus on three unique examples of shipwrecks serving as underwater habitat in three very distinct and different parts of the world: Lake Superior; the South Pacific; and the Mediterranean Sea.
