If your children are into sharks, then head to the Blue Reef Aquarium this half term, as it’s Shark Week (14-22 Feb) and the aquarium will be celebrating all things Shark with a week of dedicated special events and activities.
Alongside the regular exhibits and tanks, visitors can take the chance to feed sharks and ray, dig for real shark fossils, learn about their evolution and find out about the dangers they face in the wild and what we can all do to help protect them.
“Sharks are always one of the first things visitors want to see when they come to the aquarium. This event will provide visitors of all ages with a real insight into these fascinating fish and their truly extraordinary history. From ancient shark fossils to having the change to actually help feed real ones there really is something for everyone to enjoy.”
Blue Reef’s Adam Makinson
Visitors will have the chance to dig for their own marine fossils, enjoy quizzes, competitions and special shark workshops every day. Blue Reef will also be playing host to the groups who fight for the conservation of sharks worldwide.
Don’t miss out on the chance to help feed the native rays and sharks, spaces will be limited so get there early on Tuesday, Thursday and both Saturdays. Usual admission applies, with no extra charge for Shark Week activities with the exception of shark and ray feeding for which a small additional fee is payable.
