The Aquarium of the Bay Foundation and Sea Stewards invite you to A Celebration of the Sharks - October 16 & 17th, 2009, to celebrate the return of the sharks to the Gulf of the Farallons National Marine Sanctuary, and the other sharks that live in the Bay year round, as well as raise awareness on the importance of sharks for a healthy bay.
The goals of this continuing program are:
• Bring shark education and Bay ecosystem awareness to thousands of Bay area school age youth with free Aquarium of the Bay tours and film screenings;
• Continue the shark tagging and tracking program with our research partner, the U.C. Davis Biotelemetry Laboratory;
• Develop educational media and web products for Bay and shark conservation that will reach students, fishermen and the general population.
Tickets to the benefit party can be found at aquariumofthebay.org in the events calendar. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly towards supporting shark research and the educational media outreach effort.
