Shark Week at the Shedd Aquarium: Celebrate and Conserve


Before Humans, Dinosaurs, or Even Trees … There Were Sharks

Sharks have roamed the oceans for 450 million years, and today, over 500 species still inhabit our planet. However, these ancient predators now face the threat of extinction. This Shark Week (July 7-13) and Shark and Ray Awareness Day (July 14), Shedd Aquarium invites you to “Keep Sharks Swimming” by pledging your support, learning about these misunderstood creatures, and choosing sustainable seafood.
