Shark Research and Public Safety

A Webinar with Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and SSC Marine Mammal Rescue

Great White Sharks are one of New England’s most iconic marine animals, evoking both a sense of wonder and fear for those who visit the coast. As the Gulf of Maine continues to change and these animals recover from past exploitation, it’s crucial that we improve our understanding of white sharks. Ocean predators are a sign of a healthy marine ecosystem, and in New England, great white sharks are here to stay. 

Join local experts for a conversation about the latest great white shark research taking place in New England, and learn tips to help you reduce your chances of encountering one of these animals while spending time on the coast. We’ve dipped our toes into the conservation success story of sharks and seals in New England, but now prepare to dive deeper into current research projects, and public safety efforts that are underway.
