SHARKS! Presented by Wave on Wheels Foundation

Sharks are coming to the library! The Wave on Wheels Foundation at Newport Aquarium is bringing live Coral Cat Sharks and Epaulette Sharks to the library! The goal of the Mobile Shark Cart program is to educate and engage the community, connect you with a keystone species in our ocean's ecosystem. In addition to live sharks, several animal biofacts are used in the presentation including shark jaws, a can of shark fin soup, shark eggs, and more.
