Living with White Sharks with Greg Skomal

Special Program

Thursday, September 26th at 6:00 pm


The number of white sharks has been rising off the coast of Cape Cod in response to dramatic increases in seal abundance. In 2018, Massachusetts experienced its first fatal shark attack since 1936. The key to reducing negative interactions between white sharks and people is a better understanding of white shark behavior. This presentation will focus on this research.

Dr. Skomal is an accomplished marine biologist, charismatic speaker and senior fisheries biologist with Massachusetts Marine Fisheries since 1987. He currently heads up the Massachusetts Shark Research Program as well as directing the scientific research on Great White Sharks off the coast of Cape Cod. Join Dr. Skomal for this fascinating lecture.  

Doors will open for wine and cheese at 6 pm. Lecture at 6:30pm

The presentation is $50 per person. All proceeds will benefit the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History’s education programs. Reservations are
