Awareness Inspires Conservation: Shark Talk with AWSC

 

The Dennis Conservation Land Trust is pleased to host Atlantic White Shark Conservancy's (AWSC) Education Director, Marianne Long, for this educational talk. The AWSC is a nonprofit organization supporting scientific research, educating the community, and improving public safety. AWSC strives to increase knowledge of Atlantic white sharks to change public perception, and conserve the species and ensure biologically diverse marine ecosystems.

This program will provide audiences with an understanding of the ongoing white shark research projects being funded by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, how that research is impacting conservation and public safety efforts, and up to date information on what that research has taught us. Audience members will have an opportunity to view videos and photographs captured during the research season and develop their knowledge of what a shark is and what it takes to conduct white shark research. 

At the end of the program, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn how they can get involved in shark and ocean conservation. 

The event will take place on March 12th at 6:00 PM. The location is the Dennis Police Station meeting room at 90 Bob Crowell Rd., South Dennis. The talk is $5.00 for non-members and free for DCLT members. Payment will be accepted at the door.
