Highlighting the season, and making its first ever stop in Canada, is the blockbuster show Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence. The exhibition explores the extraordinary organisms that produce their own light — from flickering fireflies to strange deep sea fishes — and shows how light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey or defend against a predator.
