Sharks in Our Backyard: The Resurgence of Sand Tiger Sharks in New England

Despite their scary appearance, sand tiger sharks are docile ocean animals that pose no real threat to humans. Although it has a rich history in New England, this species declined due to threats like overfishing, and was rarely observed in our region during recent decades. However, a significant number of juvenile sand tigers returned to local waters in the last five to 10 years.

Come learn about the biology, conservation, and fascinating resurgence of this species in our own backyard.

Cost: Free. Pre-registration recommended at www.neaq.org/learn/lectures/
