Biosphere 2 debuts ‘living lab’ showing sea life

ORACLE, Ariz. — A living lab modeled after the Sea of Cortez is set to
open inside Biosphere 2.

University of Arizona officials said the Biosphere 2 Ocean Gallery will reopen
Saturday afternoon to show the beginning of its transformation into an ocean
habitat.

The exhibit will be a source for public outreach and research.

Biosphere 2 is also launching a crowd-funding campaign to design the facility’s
ocean biome into a miniature desert sea with underwater forest and rocky
shorelines.

The U of A operates Biosphere 2 as a science, public education and outreach
facility, with science on rain forests, solar energy and water conservation.
