All what we know is that jellyfish are sea animals that can sting. In Indonesia there are at least five main habitats of harmless jellyfish, Kakaban Lake, North Kalimantan; Misool Lake, West Papua; Kepulauan Togean, Central Sulawesi; Landu Island, East Nusa Tenggara; and Lenmakana Lake, Raja Ampat. But it turns out there are also harmless jellyfish. You can find it on jellyfish, Seaworld Ancol, North Jakarta.

Welcoming the Christmas and New Year holidays, Seaworld add unique and exotic jellyfish collection. The transparent shape looks beautiful when exposed to the colorful light of the aquarium.

Starting in 2019, Seaworld will cultivate jellyfish from several species within the Seaworld Conservation Area, so it can be used as educational recreation for visitors without having to take it from nature. In fact, Seaworld also helped preserve the presence of these harmless jellyfish.

In this latest mode, Seaworld presents 10 special aquariums. This year, a jellyfish ride themed "Witness the Miracle Here" inspired by the uniqueness of jellyfish as sea creatures that have no five senses, blood and bones, but are able to live, and some of them are feared because they have the ability to sting.

The jellyfish species displayed are more diverse. Ranging from spotted, blubber, sea nettle, upside down, to the newest and most unique species, moon jelly fish. This type of jellyfish refracts the colors of light from a special aquarium with a different system from most aquariums. Seaworld uses aquariums like kriesel, semi kriesel, and cylinders, which can make the water flow rotate, so that jellyfish will not be trapped in the corner of the aquarium, and can swim freely in the aquarium.

Therefore, in the same activity, there is also an activity to paint t-shirts for kindergarten and early childhood education programs with the theme of jellyfish using light ink in the dark.
