She encountered a ghoulish array of dead ocean creatures, such as a skeletal starfish and a massive pink squid. But the most impressive in her find was that of the decomposing corpse of a shark. Juliette said that this zombie shark evoked something that can only be found after an aquatic zombie apocalypse, which perhaps caught the attention of many of her viewers.

Speaking in French, Juliette noted that the shark was completely moldy when she and her friends found it. Upon closer look at the shark’s head, she showed the two rows of the marine creature’s sharp teeth on the video. She said in a voice-over that finding the zombie shark made their urban exploration more interesting and spectacular.

The Role of Zoos and Aquariums Play in Protecting Endangered Species

The urban explorer did not disclose the exact location and name of the abandoned aquarium or how it came to its current state. Nonetheless, some commenters believe that the animals were already dead when the aquarium was still operating, given the size of their enclosures. Many of them were found in jars and have now dried.

It is also no doubt that the aquarium had served its purpose in preserving different species when it was still in operation. According to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), these places give people an opportunity to see the diverse and beautiful wildlife that lives on the planet.

Both zoos and aquariums worldwide offer an incredible close-up experience of viewing nature. There are over 230 top zoos and aquariums under AZA that work to provide safe habitats, medical care, and a nurturing environment for endangered animals.

AZA members work together to protect them through research and conservation, advocating for wildlife conservation and funding, and working with government agencies, institutions, and non-government organizations to establish conservation initiatives.
