Underwater Wildlife New York is a project of renowned underwater photographer Keith Ellenbogen and the New York Aquarium, a Wildlife Conservation Society park. This exhibition is a visual journey beneath the waves from Montauk, New York, to Cape May, New Jersey. These coastal and ocean waters support a stunning array of marine wildlife and habitats. Few of the 22 million people living along this busy coastline are
aware of the ecological treasure trove at their doorstep. These first-of-a kind images invite you to visualize the surprising diversity and splendor of local marine species and discover what they need to thrive.
Headquartered at the Bronx Zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society has
been protecting wildlife around the world and inspiring people here in New York at our zoos and aquarium since 1895. Now, in partnership with the City of New York, WCS is transforming the New York Aquarium with a dazzling new building called Ocean Wonders: Sharks! Innovative new exhibits will invite visitors into the fascinating marine wilderness depicted in these photographs, and inspire them to advocate for healthier oceans.
Keith Ellenbogen is an acclaimed underwater photographer with a focus on environmental conservation. Through his images, he showcases the artistic beauty of nature and elicits an emotional connection to the underwater world. Over several years, working in collaboration with New York Aquarium scientist Merry Camhi and the WCS NY Seascape Program, Keith has logged more than 500 hours underwater in New York capturing the beauty and drama of marine life.
