WALKING WITH SHARKS

PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION

In the Access Building, a special view of the Oceanogràfic sharks is exhibited, after being photographed by their carers following underwater photographer Vicent Renovell’s indications.

In a few months time, visitors can also enjoy a large exhibit of large-sized pictures taken by Edgar Becerril, scientist and photographer of sharks, which will be located around the dome of the Arctic Facilities.

REAL-SCALE RECREATIONS

You will also be able to calmly walk among sharks thanks to the recreations placed on the northern route, flanking a natural-sized reproduction of the Oceanogràfic’s famous blue whale, which has been photographed by thousands of Oceanogràfic visitors. For this purpose, Mark Dando, known as the world’s best scientific illustrator in elasmobranchii, has designed a real-sized set of these animals.
