"¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge" Special Exhibition

From sun-soaked deserts to vibrant tropical reefs, Baja California is a unique and fragile place. Just across the U.S. border, it’s a place where life thrives on the edge of sand and sea on a wild coast whose future hangs in a delicate balance.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s new special exhibition, “¡Viva Baja! Life on the Edge,” explores this beautiful and rugged region, and the diverse habitats and amazing animals that thrive where Baja’s coastal deserts meet sapphire seas.

“Life in Baja California thrives on the edge,” says Senior Exhibit Developer Raúl Nava. “We’re excited to introduce visitors to the remarkable animals that live here, and highlight how people in Mexico and around the world are working to protect this extraordinary place.”
