Presentation scheduled on white shark population

May 13, 2022

 The Marion Natural History Museum will present a program on Living with White Sharks, from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 20 at the Marion Music Hall, 164 Front St.

White sharks have been returning to the Gulf of Maine in greater numbers in response to the regional recovery of seal populations.  For more than a decade. the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries and collaborators have been studying the ecology, behavior, and natural history of white sharks off the east coast of the United States.

Using state-of-the-art tagging technology, the focus of their current research has been to gain a better understanding of where, when, and how white sharks hunt their prey. This presentation will highlight this research as officials attempt to develop a science-based strategy for mitigating potential shark and human conflicts.​

 Suggested donation is $8 for members, $10 for non-members.
