In order to give our tiger shark more space, the Aquarium of the Pacific has transferred her to another AZA-accredited aquarium that has a larger shark exhibit. We wish to commend our husbandry staff who worked countless hours and showed outstanding dedication in caring for this shark. We are thrilled that we had the rare opportunity to have her at the Aquarium of the Pacific these past six months and on exhibit this past summer. She has served as an ambassador to those in the wild and created greater awareness for the plight of tiger sharks and their need for protection. We also have learned much about this species in the process of caring for her. We wish her well in her new home.
