Sharks, Uma missão de Brian Skerry

One of National Geographic's most emblematic exhibitions, "Sharks, Uma missão de Brian Skerry", is on display at Galeria da Biodiversidade - Centro Ciência Viva of the Museum of Natural History and Science of the University of Porto.
By Brian Skerry, National Geographic's photographer and photojournalist specializing in marine life and underwater environments, his goal is to warn the public to the danger of shark extinction, awaken consciousness and overcome myths, and provide a fresh perspective on these ocean predators, to stress the importance of their protection.
In Porto, and for the first time in Portugal, it will be possible to get inside a "Shark Cage" similar to that used by Brian Skerry in his expeditions. In this immersive installation, visitors can live the experience of being at the bottom of the sea, in full scientific observation and swimming with the sharks.
