National Shark Awareness Week 2023

The National Shark Awareness Week event held at the Svatý Kopeček Zoo near Olomouc is over. We were available at our stand throughout the zoo's opening hours entire weekend. Indeed, many visitors visited our stand, especially on Saturday.

We faced an unprecedented interest from children and their parents. Everything took place in a very friendly and pleasant atmosphere. We had long and interesting conversations with many visitors. We also learned many interesting pieces of information ourselves, such as about the encounter with the hammerhead shark and dugong at the Sataya dolphin reef in the Red Sea, or about the fossilized prehistoric reefs on the coast of the Adriatic Sea in Croatia. The summer vacation season is approaching, so we explained to visitors heading to their favorite resorts, among other things, how important is for marine ecosystems even the seemingly abandoned seashell on the beach. We consider the National Shark Awareness Week 2023 to be very successful. We collected a total of 1641 CZK and 0.1 EUR in the donation box for small gifts. This amount, rounded to $90 has been transferred to the PADI project (Shark & Ray Census).
