Successful launch of the Shark Exhibition in St. Gallen

Report by Shark Info

Poster

Sharks are "sexy" and attract the public like a magnet. This was proven by the run of visitors at the opening of "Sharks - the hunted Hunter", an exhibition which opened its doors on March 2, 2001, in the Museum of Natural History in St. Gallen.

This special exhibition, which provides information on the life of sharks, is sponsored by the Shark Foundation and designed to provide visitors with a better understanding of these fascinating rulers of the sea. The exhibition leads the visitor on a trip through the world of sharks. Various stations show interesting details on their origin more than 400 million years ago, their adaptation to underwater life and their development into the optimally adapted forms found today. Other stations describe their biology, reproduction, senses, behavior and special adaptations. Additional themes which the exhibition brings closer to visitors include the human-to-shark and shark-to-human relationship as well as shark protection.

 

The exhibition is mobile and will remain in St. Gallen until the end of September 2001. In the summer of 2002 it will move to the Zoological Museum in Zurich, and in 2003 it will move on to Basel. For the exact time schedules and additional exhibition locations see Exhibition (in German)
