Switch between two high-definition webcams and spot every detail on the 19 species of sharks, rays, and bony fishes living in our Shark Lagoon. Watch as blacktip reef sharks and cownose rays circle our mangrove lagoon exhibit in search of their next meal—and it’s not far away. Stop by Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 pm PT to see the next feeding. Our cams are live both day and night. Seeing a dark screen? It's likely nighttime. Please tune back in during daylight hours for more action.
Tens of millions of sharks are killed each year, solely for their fins. Sharks are the regulators of healthy marine ecosystems. Protecting the population of large, open-ocean sharks keeps the high seas healthy.
