What You Need to Know About Great Whites
Speaker: Kristen Kibblehouse, Atlantic White Shark Conservancy
The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (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.
This program will provide audiences with an understanding of 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 up-to-date information on what that research has taught us. Audience members will have an opportunity to view videos and photographs during the research season and develop their knowledge of what a shark is and what it takes to conduct white shark research.
At the end of the program, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn how they can get involved in shark and ocean conservation.
