Shark School Program

Shark School Program



Shark School Program is entirely about sharks, to our knowledge, is a completely unique program offered nowhere else. This show can be done with a live shark as the finale or without one, if the rules do not allow live animals.  Shark School Program covers shark family history and diversity, relationships to their habitat, predators and prey, biology, new research and relationship to humans.

The Shark School Program is varied somewhat depending on the grade and sophistication of the audience. This is a multi-media presentation, using photos, charts, artifacts, models, preserved specimens and video.

Though we won’t be bringing any Great White Sharks, we will be discussing them and their unfortunate relationship to humans. We will use photos and video to see how these magnificent predators rule the seas.

Children will introduced to sharks the same way we have introduced snakes to kids for 2 decades; in a non-threatening fact filled, fun presentation. The idea is have them leave loving sharks; and understanding that like with snakes, bears or deer, sometimes animals and people come together in a way where the person is hurt, but usually it’s the person that does the damage!

Since sharks are boneless creatures with cartilaginous skeletons, their jaws are usually all that is left of them after they die. Their teeth are unique to each species, making identification possible from a single tooth.

The more we learn about these animals the more surprised we are. Black tip sharks off South Africa have formed a 300 member cooperative group that resembles a dolphin pod more than any shark assemblage ever seen. They protect each other from the bigger Tiger Sharks, hunt together and actually send vocal signals to one anther to announce possible feeding opportunities! Our Shark School Program is certainly the only place where new research will be discussed with students in a multi-media setting.

This preserved specimen of a Bamboo shark will allow the students an authentic feel of a real shark without stressing out our live one. It’s amazing skin, covered in tooth-like material can easily and harmlessly be felt. The Shark School Program seeks to increase the knowledge and understanding of sharks so the fear and massive fishing usage will decrease.

We use a life size model of a Black Tip shark to discuss, in a more real way, the physical biology of the shark. What the lateral line is used for, the various fins, the sight of the shark, breathing through the gills and of course, its jaws.
