Monterey Bay Aquarium: Shark Days


I know a lot of people are fascinated by sharks and others are afraid of them. I don't fall into either camp, but I do appreciate their place in the ecosystem. My favorite denizen of the sea is, of course, the California Sea Otter. However, unlike the sea otter, sharks are probably some of the most misunderstood creatures in the sea. The Monterey Bay Aquarium will be hosting Shark Days the weekend of February 20-21 to shed light on some of the mystery. There will be many special activities and events, as well as a behind the scenes tour of the Aquarium's shark (reservations available online.)
