Here in the Education and Conservation Department at SeaWorld San Antonio, we love sharks an awful lot. We enjoy talking about all of the animals, but any time the subject of sharks comes up, we get really excited. There is just so much to say! They are ancient, well adapted, mysterious, and unfortunately, vulnerable to human interactions and misunderstanding.
Another topic that we love talking about is the behind the scenes care our amazing Aquarium staff gives the sharks every day. We’ve already given you a peek at what a shark check-up looks like, but what about day to day care? One of our Educators, Andrew Coe, caught up with Senior Aquarist and fellow SeaWorld blogger, Nick Ireland, to learn more. Check it out!
