Program Presenter: Greg Metzger, Chief Field Coordinator for the South Fork Natural History Museum Shark Research and Education Program

The South Fork Natural History Museum is one of the newest organizations to begin studying the large coastal sharks found along the south shore of Long Island. We have been specifically targeting young-of-the-year (YOY) white sharks for electronic tagging purposes. The tags have begun to give us information on their movement at this stage of their life cycle, about which virtually nothing is known. This lecture will update the public on the highlights of the 2018 field season, as well as what we have learned over our four years of work.

Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
