This presentation highlights Dr. Skomal’s research from tagging 38 white sharks off the coast of Cape Cod with coded acoustic transmitters and/or satellite-based tracking tags to examine movements, habitat use, site fidelity, residency and feeding behavior along the east coast of the US as featured on Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.”

Thoughts on Biodiversity and Public Health From the Front Lines of Marine Conservation

“Alex Shopov has been a member of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for over three years and in that time has taken part in Operation Infinite Patience, Operation Grindstop, and the Dam Guardian sea lion defense campaign. In addition to his time with Sea Shepherd, Alex has worked as an educator at the New England Aquarium, contributed to and published research in marine microbial ecology, and is an avid sailor and SCUBA diver. This presentation is an exploration into the relationship between human health and the large scale slaughter of wild animal populations, viewed through the lens of the dolphin drive hunts in Taiji, Japan, the killing of pilot whales in the Faroese grindadrap, and the culling of California sea lions in the Columbia River.”

SEALAB and a Forgotten Quest
“Author Ben Hellwarth has interviewed many surviving participants and uses archival visuals and rare audio clips in this presentation based on his well-received book SEALAB (Simon & Schuster, 2012), about the pioneering US Navy divers and scientists who set out to achieve longer and deeper dives than ever thought possible by developing "saturation diving”. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first SEALAB trial. A book signing will follow. Visit Ben at www.benhellwarth.com
