In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Shark Brothers returning to East Texas

Following last summer’s popular appearance, Sean and Brooks Paxton — collectively known as the Shark Brothers — are planning a return engagement to the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College.

Show times are 1 and 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 13 and 14, at the center, located at 1411 E. Lake St. Tickets are $5 for children, seniors and students and $7 for adults. Parking is free.

During these interactive, live appearances, the Shark Brothers will talk about how their unique life experiences and interests have led them down a career path where exploring wild ideas has become a way of life and how their philosophy of “Go-Do-Learn-Share” might just inspire audiences in some unexpected ways.

“The Center for Earth & Space Science Education is exactly the kind of place our parents would take us when we were young,” Sean Paxton said. “It reminds us just how important destinations like this are for communities and families to be inspired by science and the natural world around us. We’re really looking forward to getting back there to spend some personal time with audiences this July!”

About the Shark Brothers

Sean and Brooks Paxton’s fascination with sharks took hold during childhood, after seeing the movie “Jaws” in 1975.

Since the early 2000s, as the Shark Brothers, they have become known as innovators and shark experts, taking an active role in shark management and conservation efforts through their experience as explorers, divers, anglers, performers and producers.

They are now widely recognized as influential personalities in the world of educational entertainment with regard to a number of topics, including sharks.

In addition to their achievements in shark conservation, the broader scope of their work is inspired by a desire to create content focused on topics they’re compelled to share through series and documentaries, including live, underwater broadcasts from coral nurseries and American Civil War shipwrecks.

They maintain a heavy schedule driven by a host of projects highlighting a number of outdoor adventure, exploration and wildlife topics resulting in work seen internationally on the Discovery Channel, Shark Week, PBS, National Geographic, and the Weather Channel.
