Phoenix exhibit to shine spotlight on sharks

March 2, 2017 by  

Sharks have inhabited the Earth’s oceans for millions of years, and a Phoenix exhibition will shine a light on these ancient yet often misunderstood animals.

Planet Shark: Predator or Prey, which is being held in the Arizona Science Center, will transport visitors to the marine world, where they will take part in a multi-sensory experience that will catch the attention of the eyes and ears.

The evolution of these predatory fish will be followed, and there will be face-to-face footage of a great white shark. Guests can view the life size models that were cast using the animals themselves, as well as jaws, teeth, and fossils, some of which date back as far as 370 million years.
According to its organizers, one of the main goals of the event will be to raise the public’s awareness about these misunderstood creatures, several species of which are on the brink of extinction. Graphic design can be used to create brochures, posters, and other materials that can help to educate the public about issues such as this.

The exhibit will run at the Arizona Science Center until May 29. The cost to view it will be $6, which will be charged in addition to the general admission price. The public is invited to come and learn more about sharks, and anyone who wants to find out additional details about the event can do so by going to the Visit Phoenix website.
