Sharks older than Dinosaurs

Sharks have lived in our oceans for more than 420 million years... That makes them older than Dinosaurs!

Their brains have evolved to become more intelligent and devoted to their senses – mainly their ability to smell. There are over 500 species of shark in our oceans and you’ll meet different species when you explore our Ocean Tunnel!

SEA LIFE Trust is actively working with the Shark Trust to campaign against unsustainable shark fishing in EU waters. SEA LIFE is also proud to be coordinating the European black tip reef shark breeding programme.

Learn more about sharks and see these magnificent creatures in action at our Jawsome Sharks event running from 16 February to 6 May 2019.
