The Atlantic White Shark
Have you ever wondered about the increase of shark sightings off the MA coast? The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC) is a nonprofit organization supporting scientific research, educating the community, and improving public safety when it comes to these predators. AWSC strives to increase knowledge of Atlantic white sharks to change public perception, and conserve the species and ensure biologically diverse marine ecosystems.
This program will provide audiences with an understanding of the ongoing white shark research projects being funded by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, how that research is impacting conservation and public safety efforts, and up-to-date information on what that research has taught us.
Participants will have an opportunity to view videos and photographs captured during the research season and develop their knowledge of what a shark is and what it takes to conduct white shark research.
Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions and learn how they can get involved in shark and ocean conservation.
Preregistration is appreciated and while there is no admission fee, we are asking for a donation of at least $5.00 from non-members. Any contributions will be much appreciated and will assist in financing this and future programs.
