• Dead zones are polluted, oxygen-starved areas in the ocean. Most animals can’t live in a dead zone, but jellies can. Learn more about how you can make a difference in the ocean’s health.
• A purple-striped sea nettle’s stripes become darker as it ages, and its long, maroon tentacles begin to fade until they’re eventually thick and pale. Learn more about this jelly species and others.
