About the exhibition

The exhibition features the work of award-winning photographer Brian Skerry to raise awareness about the status of sharks around the world. 

Visitors can dive into the ocean depths to swim alongside tiger sharks, great whites, oceanic whitetips and shortfin makos while learning about each species’ habitat and threats they face. Additionally, they’ll get a glimpse into National Geographic’s ocean conservation efforts.

National Geographic Explorer and award-winning photojournalist Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater exploring the world’s oceans with a camera to show why sharks need to be protected and appreciated as integral species within the ecosystem. The exhibition will include large-scale images and videos—all highlighting Skerry’s passion, skill and life-long commitment to conservation of the world’s oceans.
