Swimming with Sharks

27th September 2015

The 15th Night of the Museums took place in Lausanne this weekend. This event involves all the museums of the city which open their doors from 2 PM to 2AM the night of Saturday. The Museum of Natural History hosts the largest preserved White Shark in the world – a 5.83 meter long Carcharodon carcharias caught in Sète, France (Mediterranean Sea), on 13th October 1956. Ten years after the last ‘Shark’ themed Night of the Museum in 2005 during which Michael introduced the world of Sharks to the public, the Save Our Seas Foundation created a special ‘Swimming with Sharks’ event around the famous White Shark exhibit. This animation allowed children (as well as children at heart adults) to immerse themselves with Sharks and Rays using a green screen.
