The Mind Museum and the California Academy of Sciences (CAS), with the support from the U.S. government, today launched “A Glass of the Sea: An Exhibition on the Coral Triangle.”

The exhibition features the astounding biodiversity of the Coral Triangle, particularly the Verde Island Passage which is dubbed as the world’s "center of the center of marine biodiversity."

“The U.S. government is pleased to be part of this exhibit which aims to showcase the wealth of the Philippines’ biodiversity and more importantly, to raise awareness on the need to conserve the Coral Triangle to support marine resources and the coastal communities that depend on them,” U.S. Embassy Manila’s United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission Director Gloria D. Steele said. “Strengthened natural resources and environmental management contributes to our shared goal of broad-based and resilient growth in the Philippines”.
