The Greensboro Science Center's Shark Week is sponsored by Fins Car Wash. "We are so excited to be joining the beautiful Greensboro community and are thrilled to be partnering with the Greensboro Science Center right before our two area locations open for business," says Greg Ries, Vice President of Fins Car Wash. "Our mascot, Fin the Shark, can’t wait to meet new customers and join in on all the Shark Week fun."

Sharks have been selected by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) as a signature species for SAFE (Saving Animals From Extinction). SAFE focuses the collective expertise of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums to save signature species by increasing direct conservation spending as well as increasing work in the field and within zoos and aquariums, and through public engagement. Shark Week is one example of the center's involvement in this vital conservation effort.
