Shark Shacks

Shark Lab students at shark shack

This Summer 2023, the Shark Lab is hosting Shark Shacks at various beaches along Southern California every week to help build an appreciation for sharks by reducing fear and informing the public about sharks and other marine life they may encounter at the beach. We will have information and activities for all ages.

Keep an eye out for our tent near your local beach's pier and please stop by to say hi!
