Program Presenter: Marianne Long, Education Director and Volunteer Coordinator at the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.
Marianne, Education Director of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, will provide an overview of the work of the Conservancy. She will discuss the public’s perception of sharks, explain the role of sharks in our marine ecosystem, and then go into detail about the ongoing white shark research taking place off of Cape Cod, the movement of white sharks along the Atlantic coastline, and how that research will help in white shark conservation. There will be plenty of time for a Q & A after the program
