“This exhibit is awesome, we’re so excited. Thank you for letting us host it!”Chevy Humphrey, CEO, Arizona Science Center

 
Produced on a size and scale never seen before, Planet Shark: Predator or Prey includes awe-inspiring shark models cast from real animals, an extraordinary collection of real teeth and jaws, and extremely old and rare fossils – some up to 370 million years old. Cutting-edge SENSORY4™ technology provides a walkthrough, multi-sensory cinematic experience that will leave you deeply immersed in the story of this magnificent yet sadly misunderstood animal.

This ground-breaking exhibition could not have come at a better time. Years of fishing pressure and media misrepresentation have pushed the shark to the brink of extinction. Their last hope lies with public education and awareness – and the launch of Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is the vital first step. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity for young and old alike.

Planet Shark has timeless appeal and is a proven brand that will drive significant visitation to a venue.
