Living networks connect and support life forms large and small—from colonies of tiny microbes and populations of massive whales to ever-expanding human societies. In the California Academy of Sciences’ latest original planetarium show, Habitat Earth, discover what it means to live in today’s connected world. Through stunning visualizations of the natural world, dive below the ocean’s surface to explore the dynamic relationships found in kelp forest ecosystems, travel beneath the forest floor to see how Earth’s tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive, and journey to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks.


Children’s Show: The Living Planet  Join an interstellar tour as an alien visiting the amazing blue planet, Earth!  Dive deep into the oceans, scour the vast deserts and trek deep into the heart of the rain forest!  This new program is specially designed for our youngest visitors aged 3-8!
