National Geographic Sharks

Come face-to-nose with one of the world’s most feared predators in the new temporary exhibition opening October 23 at Georgia Aquarium, “SHARKS: On Assignment with Brian Skerry.”

National Geographic Explorer and award-winning photojournalist Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater exploring the world’s ocean with a camera to show why sharks need to be protected and appreciated as an integral species within our ecosystem.

The exhibition includes large-scale images and videos, all highlighting Skerry’s passion, skill and lifelong commitment to conservation of our oceans. The more he understands sharks, the more he wants to show them not as predators to be feared, but as animals to respect and value.

“SHARKS” allows you to dive into the depths with tiger sharks, great whites, oceanic whitetips and shortfin makos, all while learning about each species’ habitat and the threats they face. The exhibition will be on display on Level 2 of the Aquarium in the queuing space just outside the 4D Funbelievable Theater through April 2018.

Skerry’s remarkable photographs can be yours to take home in the beautiful National Geographic book, SHARK, available for purchase at Georgia Aquarium’s gift shop, Treasures of the Sea.
