In celebration of World Oceans Day, Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay and Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage invite guests to learn about protecting the world’s oceans and what can be done to make a positive impact on them and their marine life inhabitants (Pictured: Lionfish)

This year’s theme is “Our Oceans ­- Our Future” with a focus on encouraging solutions to plastic pollution and preventing marine litter.

Shark Reef Aquarium

Visit green sea turtles, sawfish, sharks and more than 2,000 other animals in the exhibit while learning about the importance of sustainable seafood and keeping the oceans clean. Representatives from leading conservation groups, such as The Nature Conservancy and Reef Check, will be on site to talk with guests about the world’s oceans and what can be done to protect them.

Educational activities will be located throughout the aquarium, including live artwork demonstrations by the Las Vegas Art Guild, aquatic artwork displays by Wyland Galleries and children’s art projects made from recycled products. Participants of the Better Bag Challenge and those who post a “Selfie for the Sea” will receive reusable Shark Reef Aquarium market bags.

Polar Journey, an interactive experience that opened in March, focuses on the Polar regions and how climate change is having an impact on the animals living there. Through staff and interactive exhibits, guests learn how to make a difference through small changes.
