As Shark Week’s official online “Shark Cam” partner, the Georgia Aquarium will provide streaming and video content for Discovery’s Shark Week website, discovery.com/sharkweek. The site includes a live streaming webcam from Georgia Aquarium’s Ocean Voyager gallery, built by The Home Depot, which is home to four whale sharks and additional species of sharks. Ocean Voyager is the world’s largest single aquarium exhibit, and Georgia Aquarium is the only aquarium outside of Asia to house whale sharks.

Don't miss the interactive dive shows with underwater question and answer sessions! The live chats will occur Monday through Friday at 12:30 p.m. each day. Post your questions on Discovery's website in the chat section at www.dsc.discovery.com/sharks/shark-cam/. This is a very cool event that you won't want to skip out on. Join us on your lunch break and bring any of your shark questions!

Additional Georgia Aquarium online features include several videos posted in Discovery's "Sharks at Georgia Aquarium" Shark Week playlist. Videos include an up-close view of a unique whale shark feed, a walk-through of how Georgia Aquarium transported whale sharks around the world, an overview of the groundbreaking research and conservation efforts underway at Georgia Aquarium to assist shark species, and a look at how viewers can come face-to-fin underwater with whale sharks, sand tiger sharks, manta rays and more in the Aquarium’s Dive Immersion Program, Journey with Gentle Giants.

Shark Week is August 12-16, 2012, but Georgia Aquarium’s Shark Cam and online features will be available now until the end of August 2012. All the fun is hosted on their website at discovery.com/sharkweek.
