SHARKS is a new exhibition currently under development by the Australian Museum, Sydney, and will be toured internationally by Evergreen Exhibitions and The Exhibitions Agency.
The story of humans and sharks is an ancient one. Sometimes it’s a story of respect and harmony. At other times, the tale is one of fear, horror and intruders. To understand the role of sharks in our oceans’ fragile ecosystems, we need to know about their place in the past, their current plight, and imagine what a future world would look like without sharks. Visitors are invited into a world dominated by members of the shark family to explore themes such as their genetic diversity, territories, interactions and significance to ocean ecosystems.
