Lecture on Great White Sharks

On Wednesday, June 23 at 7:30 pm the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present Great White Shark Tagging with Dr. Greg Skomal, biologist with the State Division of Marine Fisheries.  Dr. Skomal’s research in tagging Great White Sharks off Monomoy Island to track their migratory patterns has been widely reported and has drawn considerable public interest.
He will present an exciting program on the pop-up satellite transmitting tagsplaced on Great White Sharks off Chatham last summer and what the scientific community is learning about the travels and behavior of this ancient and mythic animal. Cape Cod’s growing seal population points to continued and greater sightings of the Great White Shark. Dr. Skomal is the author of The Shark Handbook: The Essential Guide for Understanding the Sharks of the World.

This presentation is a special opportunity to hear about current shark studies by an international shark expert who cares deeply about the protection of the marine environment. For further information, contact the Museum at 508-896-3867or visit  www.ccmnh.org
