Sharks! Awareness Inspires Conservation
Marianne Long, formerly from Rockland and now Education Director for the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, a nonprofit research and educational organization, will present ongoing white shark research projects and explain how that research is impacting conservation and public safety efforts. AWSC’s Sharktivity app is used by officials from Cape Cod and South Shore towns to raise awareness of the presence of sharks off our coast.
Audience members will have an opportunity to view videos and photographs captured during the research season and learn what a shark is and what it takes to conduct white shark research. A short question and answer period will follow.
