Saturday 18 June

Sharks have swum in our oceans for hundreds of millions of years, surviving through huge changes in Earth’s climate and catastrophic mass extinctions.

Join NHM Curator Emma Bernard to see some of the beautiful fossil and recent shark specimens that tell their story, from giant megalodon teeth to entire amazingly preserved specimens. Learn how ancient sharks adapted and survived, and what lessons we can learn from them about the future of our changing planet.
