Shark Week-Aquarium of the Pacific

We don't normally post events-but since we really like the guys at the Long Beach AQ and it's Shark Week related:

This Shark Week visitors to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach can embark on their own shark adventures.

Aquarium guests will discover that sharks are as diverse as the ocean they inhabit, as they see sharks of all shapes and sizes found throughout the Pacific Ocean from Palau to Southern California. They'll find out why sharks are important to the planet and how individuals can help
protect them.

SHARK WEEK ADVANCE SCREENING OFFERED LONG BEACH SEA FESTIVAL

In partnership with the Discovery Channel, the City of Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine Department, and Charter Communications, the Aquarium of the Pacific will gear up for Shark Week with an advance FREE screening of a new episode on its front lawn on Sunday, July 20 at 8:00 p.m. The public is invited to bring their family and friends to watch the episode as it is projected on a large outdoor screen.

Wow, that's so cool that you're promoting Shark Week 2008 airing Sunday, July 27 @ 9pm. Are you going to the advance screening? I'm thinking about it.

Have you checked out http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/sharkweek/sharkweek.htm yet? There is a cool upcoming feature called Shark Yourself. It looks cool. It's not up and running yet, but I'll definitely let you know once it is.

Anyway, I work with Discovery so I have the inside scoop. I would be happy to share more info if you’re interested. So let me know.

I hope I’m not overstepping my boundaries, I’m just trying to get the word out about Shark Week 2008.

Have a great day,

Hi Marianne,

I believe something like 27.3 million people saw us on Perfect Predators 2007 Shark Week.

Let's see if we can push it to 29 this year. Tell us what you would like us to wrap and we'll put it up for you. We get about 10K a month here now;)
