in the Auditorium
Program is free. Museum exhibits are not open.
Marianne works as the Education Director for the Atlantic White Shark. Marianne studied marine science at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina, where she worked with sharks in their natural habitat. Seeing first-hand how misunderstood these animals are led her to work in a career where she could try to replace fear with facts.
Great white sharks in Cape Cod waters! What do we need to know to live with these fascinating fish? What has research taught us? In this multi-media presentation, Marianne Long will discuss the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy’s ongoing research projects, and what effects that research is having on conservation and public safety.
The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (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.
