Science made Public: Understanding the Secret life of Sharks

August 30, 2016 by Julia Pearl

Ocean Science Exhibit Center
15 School Street
Woods Hole, MA 02540

SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC – During July and August, WHOI’s Ocean Science Exhibit Center and Information Office at WHOI sponsor a series of public talks by WHOI scientists and engineers designed for a lay audience. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Understanding the Secret Lives of Sharks
Camrin Braun, Joint Program Student, Biology Department

All the information that scientists understand about the iconic great white
shark comprise only a few short sentences. We have no generalizable knowledge
about what they eat or their feeding behaviors, no knowledge of where they go
to mate or to breed, and absolutely no answers to “why” they do almost
anything. For all other shark species, we know even less. Learn how researchers
are using cutting-edge, satellite-based tags on sharks in our back yard on Cape
Cod to answer some of these basic questions about sharks.
