All About Sharks

Sharks are a diverse group of cartilaginous fish (meaning that they have skeleton made of cartilage versus bone) that are found throughout Earth’s one global ocean. These incredible creatures are known for their many rows of teeth, which can be serrated for cutting or smooth for crushing. They are a vital part of the marine ecosystem, yet many species are now imperiled due to immense pressures created by unsustainable fishing practices, habitat deterioration, and changing prey availability. While often reduced to a mischaracterized subject of fear, we invite you to take a deeper dive with us as we attempt to gain a greater understanding of these ancient, awesome predators.


Learn more about sharks, including where they live, what they eat, and how we can help continue the conservation of these incredible animals.
