Come visit Shark Angels at Shark Con and the Pinellas Pace Center for Girls Shark Angels Club in Tampa, FL, from May 3-4. Held at the Tampa Convention Center and hosted by the Florida Aquarium, Shark Con is a weekend long event devoted to raising awareness about sharks and ocean conservation. Educational and entertaining, the event aims to inform the general public on the importance of sharks and their watery world.
The event will bring together conservation groups, entertainers, artists, scientists and vendors to create a dynamic experience. University researchers, Discovery Channel personalities and conservation officials are scheduled to speak at the conference, including Shark Angels’ Julie Andersen.
Along with the opening the conference, Shark Angels will have our own booth, where we will speak with guests about our conservation work and goals for sharks. We will also be coordinating an interactive art exhibit. Guests of all ages can color and design their own shark, which will then be added to our net exhibit. DOWNLOAD A PDF OF OUR SHARK DRAWING HERE. Our goal is to have a visual representation of how many sharks are killed for their fins every two minutes (380). This interactive exhibit will help us get the message out about the horrors of shark finning and that we want Florida to be Fin Free. Our Pace girls club will be cutting out the paper sharks for everyone visiting the booth, or guests can color their contribution to the exhibit at home. Along with the exhibit, we will be launching our new monthly donor program called Team Jawsome.
Please join us at Shark Con to spread the word and help save sharks!
