Washed Ashore™ Sculpture Exhibit — Great White Shark
12′ long by 6′ wide by 6′ high
Ancestors of Great White Sharks began swimming through oceans more than 400 million years ago. With keen intelligence and six highly refined senses: smell, hearing, touch, taste, sight and even electroreception (the ability to sense electric fields), they are one of evolution’s greatest success stories. Today, humans are their biggest threat. Illegal poaching for shark fin soup, sport and trophy fishing, and many forms of pollution are all responsible for their declining numbers. Great White Sharks play an essential role in the ocean’s ecosystem and need our respect and help to survive.
