Electra C Doren

Sharks are awesome, and tend to get a lot of attention in the media. However, they are often misrepresented and misunderstood- and Newport Aquarium’s WAVE Foundation is working to change that by bringing live Coral Cat Sharks to you! The goal of our Mobile Shark Cart program is to educate and engage our community, connecting you with a keystone species in our ocean’s ecosystem. In addition to live sharks, several animal biofacts are used in this presentation including shark jaws, a can of shark fin soup, shark eggs, and more. By the end of this program, you will know how you can make a difference in shark conservation! Please register in advance.
