The mural “What it’s Like to Be a Fish” (created by J.Sverchuk & E.Peña) illustrates the underwater worlds of salt water and fresh water. It meets at the center, representing the estuary that makes up the LI sound. The window in the middle of the mural is utilized to provide daylight to the translucent section (of the mural), giving off a stain glass effect.
Meet Shirawani (it means sand tiger shark in Japanese). She is still taking shape with her recycled material body and getting to know her new home at Green Chimneys. Here, The Shark Finatics have an amazing tale to share about the sharks home in the Long Island Sound and it’s inhabitants. This story can be viewed along with Shirawani at the Fish Tales exhibit.
This is their personal story. The journey of the Shark Finatics began with unknown answers to one of this planet’s most extraordinary creatures. Through passion as well as compassion, we work hard to educate others. Our mission is to keep sharks in our oceans, where they belong.
Learning, Teaching, Saving is our motto. Through education, of ourselves and others, we hope to help ensure the continued existence of sharks in our oceans, an endangered species.
