Nuclear Sharks now showing!

Wed 22 Mar 2017Sat 22 Apr 2017


WA Maritime Museum

During the Cold War, nuclear testing at Bikini Atoll had catastrophic consequences. The bombs that were detonated in this area vaporised two islands and seemingly destroyed all living life.

Philippe Cousteau and his wife Ashlan Gorse Cousteau recently travelled to the atoll with marine biologist Luke Tipple. The trio aimed to understand the seemingly inexplicable survival of the Grey Reef Shark.

Thought to be a non-migratory creature, their existence caused researchers to question where the atoll population had stemmed from. This documentary seeks the answer to this question, whilst revealing shocking and illegal discoveries along the way.

Times: 11am and 2pm
Cost: Free with Museum entry
Bookings: Required for groups 10+

For further information please call 1300 134 081.

The screening of Nuclear Sharks is sponsored by the U.S. Consulate General Perth.
