MDI Science Café Online — OCEARCH’s North Atlantic White Shark Study
October 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This online MDI Science Café will be presented by Robert Hueter, Ph.D., chief scientist of OCEARCH. OCEARCH is a data-centric organization built to help scientists collect previously unattainable data in the ocean. Their mission is to accelerate the ocean’s return to balance and abundance, through fearless innovations in scientific research, education, outreach and policy, using unique collaborations of individuals and organizations in the U.S. and abroad. Previous research in Nova Scotia, Canada identified a growing population of white sharks, known as a “hotspot.” In September of this year, Dr. Hueter and OCEARCH are leading a research effort in the same area, bringing an advanced team of multidisciplinary shark researchers to study the sharks’ biology, physiology, health and more.
