Tempe aquarium strives to debunk myths about sharks

On Sunday, the same day Discovery Channel’s Shark Week television programming starts, Sea Life will launch a week of educational activities about sharks.

Activities range from shark feedings to shark-expert talks and a scavenger hunt.

What: Daily shark-expert demonstrations at 2:45 p.m. include
