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
