Audio-Visual Presentation and Shark Dissection
The public and learner groups are encouraged to visit our complex at 1a Herrwood Drive, Umhlanga.
A large screen audio-visual presentation draws the audience in the world of the shark and the role the KZNSB plays in keeping our protected beaches free from shark attack. Duration 25 minutes.
In an effort to bring science to learners and visitors in an informal setting, the Sharks Board has made a shark dissection part of the whole learning experience. Duration 30 min.
These sharks were found dead in the shark safety gear during routine servicing at protected beaches and then stored in deep freezers until required for dissection. This ensures that the specimens do not deteriorate and valuable information is not lost.
Audiences will be enlightened into the activities and daily life at the Sharks Board via the 25 minute audio-visual presentation and the shark dissection is a natural follow on to complete the dissemination of information to the public at each show. The curved, tiered seating assures easy viewing of the dissection. The presenter gives an overview of the shark to be dissected e.g. species, sex, length and weight before the actual dissection begins.
For many of the learners attending our shows, this is their first encounter with a real shark, and the only opportunity they may ever have of touching the skin, seeing the internal structure and learning about the world of the shark. Senses, reproduction, feeding habits etc. are all covered.
