Great white sharks fill us with terror and awe… yet how much do you really know about them?
Kristen Kibblehouse, marine science educator with "The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy" (AWSC), joins us virtually from Chatham, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod. The AWSC is a nonprofit organization supporting scientific research, educating the community, and improving public safety. AWSC strives to increase knowledge of Atlantic white sharks to change public perception and conserve the species and ensure biologically diverse marine ecosystems.
Kristen will discuss the ongoing white shark research projects being conducted and funded by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, how that research is impacting conservation and public safety efforts, and what current research has revealed. She will present videos and photographs from the latest research season and talk about what a shark is and what it takes to conduct white shark research.
At the end of the program, Kristen will answer your questions and explain how you can get involved in shark and ocean conservation!
Thursday, August 5, 7 p.m. This is a free virtual program using Zoom.
