Shark Weeks - Get involved


In partnership with Discovery Channel, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium will be celebrating sharks – one of the most misunderstood animals in the world from 25 November – 20 December 2013 and encouraging visitors to pledge to become Fin Free, with the target of 100,000 signatures across our netowrk of SEA LIFE Aquariums.

 


Make a difference

Every year over 70 million sharks are killed by shark finning and as bycatch from fishing, and experts believe 90% of the ocean’s sharks have already disappeared! Get involved with Shark Weeks and help protect an essential part of the ocean ecosystem.

 

 

What's On

Visitors during Shark Weeks will get to learn all about sharks, including the threats they face, where they live, and lots of other fascinating facts for both children and adults alike.

An evening with Australia's leading expert on Great White sharks, Barry Bruce. See below for more info. 

 


Get involved:

  • Sign our Fin Free pledge
  • Avoid shark fin products 
  • Spread the word about the plight of sharks

SL Discovery Channel Shark Week

 

Shark Week on Discovery Channel

Starts Sunday 1 December at 7:30pm AEDT/NZDT

Feared. Admired. Threatened. Misunderstood. The shark is one of the most fascinating animals on Earth. 

 

Starting Sunday 1 December 2013, Shark Week returns to Discovery Channel bringing you the most informative and riveting programs on these magnificent creatures of the deep! 

 

Intelligent and graceful, and an undeniably efficient predator, they continue to fascinate humans and Shark Week will get you acquainted from all angles - from the science of shark behaviour, to amazing survival stories and up-close encounters with Great Whites. 

 

Shark Week is hosted by Aussie rugby league legend Andrew 'ET' Ettingshausen.
