World Oceans Day at Shark Reef Aquarium

Visit green sea turtles, sawfish, sharks and more than 2,000 other animals in the exhibit while learning about the importance of sustainable seafood and keeping the oceans clean. Representatives from leading conservation groups, such as The Nature Conservancy and Reef Check will be on site to talk with guests about the world’s oceans and what can be done to protect them.

Educational activities will be located throughout the aquarium, including live artwork demonstrations by the Las Vegas Art Guild, aquatic artwork displays by Wyland Galleries and children’s art projects made from recycled products. Participants of the Better Bag Challenge and those who post a “Selfie for the Sea” will receive reusable Shark Reef Aquarium market bags.

Polar Journey, An Interactive Adventure that opened this past March, focuses on the Polar regions and how climate change is having an impact on the animals that call them home.  Through staff and the interactive exhibits, learn about how you can make a difference through small changes.  

We hope to see you there!
