Catlin Group Limited is partnering with the Natural History Museum in London to present a major exhibition in 2015 that will explore the importance and beauty of coral reefs.

‘Coral Reefs: Secret Cities of the Sea’ will include a live coral reef; the opportunity for visitors to take a virtual dive to explore coral reefs around the world; and more than 200 natural specimens such as corals, fish and fossils. 

The exhibition, to be held at the Natural History Museum, will open on March 27, 2015 and run through September, 2015.

The partnership with the Natural History Museum is a natural extension of Catlin’s sponsorship of the Catlin Seaview Survey, a series of scientific expeditions utilizing pioneering underwater imaging technology to study the changes occurring to coral reefs. 

A spokesperson for Catlin said the company “believes that the insurance industry has an obligation to help scientists gather impartial data so our society can learn more about the future risks.
