In celebration of Endangered Species Day, Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay and Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage invite guests to participate in educational activities that demonstrate the importance of protecting the world’s wildlife currently on the brink of extinction (Pictured: Shark Reef Aquarium Sea Turtles).
Shark Reef Aquarium
Visit the more than 2,000 animals in this exhibit while learning about the world’s endangered species that can be found both at the aquarium and in the wild. Educational booths will be set up throughout the exhibit to showcase real shark jaws, turtle shells, shark teeth and more to teach visitors about wildlife trafficking. As guests wind their way through the aquarium, they’ll learn about the Association of Zoos & Aquarium’s Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE) program, which includes a focus on sharks, sea turtles, cheetahs and other select animals facing extinction.
