The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium in Draper is offering some “jaw-some events” in celebration of Shark Week through Sunday.
During Shark Week, a weeklong summer celebration during Discovery Channel’s Shark Week programming, patrons at the Draper facility can go on a scavenger hunt to discover 17 unique shark species, plus learn all about sharks and why they’re not the man-eating machines they’re made out to be.
Besides checking out the aquarium in person, shark lovers can also tune in to the aquarium’s social media pages to learn how staff train the sharks, do some shark myth-busting and celebrate Women’s Dive Day on July 17. The aquarium has eight women divers, many of whom dive with the sharks.
The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, 12033 Lone Peak Parkway, is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Last entry is one hour before close. Tickets at the door are $21.95 for adults; $18.95 for teenagers, students, senior citizens or those with a military ID; and $13.95 for children 3 to 12; children 2 and under get in free.
