TODAY! Bring your kids to the National Aquarium, Washington, DC, today, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a meet and greet with Sherman the Shark! Sherman the Shark is based on a popular character created by nationally syndicated cartoonist Jim Toomey, and is dedicated to the Aquarium’s important work on shark education and conservation. While you’re at the Aquarium, be sure to check out Toomey’s illustrations in the Sherman’s Lagoon exhibit, and look for the live sharks lurking in the Channel Islands, National Marine Sanctuary exhibit!
