Their Own Light: An Illuminated Story of Bioluminescence

by Justin Glanville and Julia Kuo

Bioluminescence is the process by which certain animals and plants create their own light. This illuminated story explores how bioluminescence works — and contemplates how amazing it must feel to glow at will!

Some places we have seen these bioluminescent creatures for ourselves:
- Glowworms by boat in the Te Anau caves of New Zealand
- Dinoflagellates by kayak at Point Reyes National Seashore in California
- Bioluminescent water and sand in St. John in the US Virgin Islands
- Firefox in the mountains of Taroko National Park, Taiwan
