Just as they are a vital element to coral reef ecosystems in nature, these sharks are one of the final and most important pieces of our new exhibit, the most comprehensive re-creation of an Indo-Pacific coral reef in the country.

Can't make it to Baltimore to see Blacktip Reef in person? You can now virtually step into the exhibit and meet hundreds of aquatic animals by checking out our underwater Blacktip Reef Shark Cam!

Through a partnership with Discovery Channel and Shark Week, we're excited to be able to share our exhibit virtually and hope to inspire conservation of these amazing animals AND their equally fragile habitats!
