Newport Aquarium, the Shark Capital of the Midwest, Announces Shark Week Activities





Newport Aquarium will be a new participant in a Species Survival Plan for zebra sharks when they add two female zebra sharks to the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit.


The introduction of two female zebra sharks highlights a jaw-some lineup of Shark Week (July 5-12) activities at Newport Aquarium.

The addition of the two female zebra sharks will increase the number of exhibited sharks at Newport Aquarium to 56 across 15 species, the most in the Midwest.

As part of a breeding program sanctioned by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), both female zebra sharks will be introduced to the Coral Reef tunnel during a media event on July 6. The two females will eventually make their way to the Surrounded by Sharks tank, where two adult male zebra sharks reside.

The AZA’s Species Survival Plan for zebra sharks calls for accredited institutions to help develop the population by arranging for biologically distant matches to meet in environments conducive to mating.

From touching sharks, to viewing sharks above, below and around, the most shark-infested place to celebrate Shark Week is Newport Aquarium, where there is always more new to see and do:


Shark Bridge – Guests can experience sharks like never before by crossing the world’s first and only Shark Bridge. Included with admission, the Shark Bridge is a 75-foot-long rope suspension bridge that hangs just inches above nearly two dozen sharks.
Surrounded by Sharks – Newport Aquarium’s signature exhibit, guests can travel through an 85-foot-long acrylic tunnel inside a 385,000-gallon tank as seven species of shark – scalloped hammerhead, sand tiger, whitetip, blacktip, zebra, sandbar and nurse – swim over and above.
Shark Tank Dive Shows – Guests catch their first and largest views of shark rays and sharks at the Shark Ray Bay Theater, where our shark dive shows feature a scuba diver addressing and taking questions from the audience about the biology and conservation of sharks and other animals found inside the tank. (July 5 and July 10-12: Noon, 12:20 p.m., 12:40 p.m., 2 p.m., 2:20 p.m. and 2:40 p.m.)
Shark Feedings – Newport Aquarium performs public feedings for its sharks and shark rays, where guests can watch biologists feed from either the Shark Ray Bay Theater, the Surrounded by Sharks tunnels, or through a biologist’s point-of-view from the Shark Tank Overlook. (Shark tank feed 11 a.m. July 6 and July 8; Large shark feed 11 a.m. July 7; Shark ray feedings 1:30 p.m. July 6-10)
Shark Touch Pool – At the Shark Central exhibit, guests have the opportunity to touch dozens of sharks. An Animal Experience Specialist teaches guests the proper technique to touch sharks and helps them understand each species in this international collection. (9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily)
Sharks After Dark Overnight – Guests can sink their teeth into some great shark facts and sleep safely as they swim above. Every Overnight Adventure includes exclusive aquarium access, shark-themed games and activities. (7:30 p.m. July 10)
Shark Week T-Shirts for Conservation – Officially licensed Discovery Channel Shark Week T-shirts will be available for purchase at the Newport Aquarium gift shop starting July 5. A portion of the revenue generated from these Shark Week tees will be donated to the WAVE Foundation at Newport Aquarium, which supports aquatic conservation.

Two Summers of Fun: Now through July 29, guests who purchase a Newport Aquarium Annual Pass will receive two summers of fun – 14 months of unlimited visits for the price of 12.

Columbus, Ohio coffee roaster Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea has welcomed its first international 7 Steps coffee shop to the community of independent coffee houses, cafés and bakeries serving Crimson Cup beverages. Columbus Coffee Shop opened May 22 in the city of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

“We’re excited to welcome Columbus Coffee Shop to the Crimson Cup community,” said Founder and President Greg Ubert. “Partners Mohaimin Mostafa, Rehanur Rahman, Mirza Abdul Khaled and Tarek Rafi Bhuiyan have created an inviting space for Dhaka residents to enjoy handcrafted espressos, café mochas, lattes and other handcrafted coffee drinks.”

Several of the partners absorbed American coffee culture while studying in campus coffee houses as foreign exchange students in the U.S. Returning to Bangladesh, they saw an opportunity to capitalize on the growing popularity of American-style coffee in their predominantly tea-drinking country.

Mostafa and Bhuiyan enjoyed Crimson Cup coffee while studying at Ohio State University in Columbus. They reached out for support through Crimson Cup’s 7 Steps to Success coffee franchise alternative program. Based on Ubert’s book, Seven Steps to Success in the Specialty Coffee Industry, the program teaches prospective business owners everything they need to open a coffee shop. Hands-on consulting covers everything from writing a coffee shop business plan and finding the right location to choosing equipment, hiring and training staff, attracting customers and more.

After just 9 months of planning and construction, they were ready to open the first in a series of coffee houses planned in Bangladesh.

Mostafa traveled to the Crimson Cup Brew Lab in Columbus to complete initial training. When Columbus Coffee was ready to open, 7 Steps Trainer Steve Bayless traveled to Dhaka to teach Columbus Coffee managers and staff about drink preparation and other aspects of operating a coffee house.

The May 22 grand opening was a star-studded affair, attended by local celebrities including actor Ananta Jalil, actresses Barsha Afiea, Tisha and Dithi Anowar, singers Arnob, Topu, Tahsan and filmmaker Gazi Mazharul Anwar.

Columbus Coffee Shop offers a wide range of handcrafted hot, iced and frozen espresso drinks as well as hot and iced teas. Sandwiches and fresh-baked goods round out the menu. Customers can also buy bags of Crimson Cup beans to brew at home.

Columbus Coffee Shop is open from 11a.m. until midnight daily on the second floor House # 25, Road # 11, Block H, Banani, Dhaka. The soothing ambiance of the 2,000-square-foot shop entices visitors with hardwood floors, soft lighting and comfortable seating arranged in intimate conversation circles.

The partners plan to open branches of Columbus Coffee Shop in Dhanmondi, Uttara and Mirpur in Dhaka, and in Chittagong, Sylhet and Cox’s Bazar.
