Seeing Deeper into the World of the Great White Shark with Dr. Greg Skomal

Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 6:30 pm.

Despite its well-established presence in the North Atlantic Ocean the white shark is not considered an abundant species, and efforts to study its ecology have historically been hampered by the inability of researchers to predictably find these sharks. However, the rebounding population of gray seals off the coast of New England is drawing white sharks in greater numbers to our shoreline. Cape Cod has now become the only known aggregating site for white sharks in the North Atlantic.

To take advantage of this opportunity, the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries initiated a long-term white shark program in 2009 to study the ecology and natural history of this species in the western North Atlantic. With more than 100 white sharks now tagged with sophisticated technology, Dr. Greg Skomal and his team are piecing together an incredible story of how this shark lives in the North Atlantic.

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 for the last 6 years.

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

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

Reservations are required

For more information please call the Museum at 508-896-3867 ext. 133

Shark Tracking Workshop with Jr.Tech

Shark Tracking Workshop with Jr.Tech

Why is it that we know so little about an animal that has been around before the dinosaurs? It is only just recently that we have begun to discover the travel patterns of great white sharks in the Atlantic.  The reality is we needed engineers and scientist to build technology so we could learn more about this animal. You will learn about the current tagging technology used today and discuss limitations and future needs. What are limitations and risks for scientists?  Understand how communication skills play a huge role in marine research teams. Enter the shark tag challenge and build your very own neutrally buoyant receiver. Join in the fun team challenges throughout the day.  (6 hrs instruction) Pack a lunch, drink & snack.


Grades: 4, 5 & 6
Price: $85
