Jellyfish have been part of our marine ecosystems for 500 million years, but now they seem ready to take over completely. Global warming and pollution have increased their numbers dramatically. What does this mean for our ecosystems?

Enjoy the artistic experience, but also learn more about current scientific insights from our own UG researchers!

The installation will be on display from 21 May in the lobby of the University Library. The opening will take place on Friday 17 May, at 3:00 PM. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend the opening!
