Wondering about the increase of shark sightings off the MA coast?
Join Kristen Smith, Community Engagement Manager for the AWSC, to gain 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. You will have an opportunity to view videos and photographs captured during the research season and develop your knowledge of what a shark is and what it takes to conduct white shark research.
