A Shipwreck as a Portal for an Aquarium Exhibit

June 25, 2012

For the past year, WCS scientist-divers have been visiting the waters off Montauk, N.Y., to document the Lightburne, a vessel that famously sank during 1939. The conservationists are studying the sea life that swarms around this and other local shipwrecks to inform work on a new $150-million exhibit at WCS’s New York Aquarium, Ocean Wonders: Sharks!
