Can I visit the sharks?
Many SEA LIFE centres are home to a number of sharks. By registering this gift you will receive one free SEA LIFE ticket to go and visit the sharks! To avoid disappointment, before you visit check with SEA LIFE that the centre keeps blacktip reef sharks. Please note that due to ongoing breeding programmes or due to natural causes, sharks can be relocated at short notice, or may not be on public display.
What species of shark have I adopted?
You have adopted a blacktip reef shark. Many SEA LIFE centres are home to these sharks (and others!) which naturally live amongst the coral reefs of the Indian and Pacific oceans.
