Wildlife Wednesdays: Rhode Island’s Great White Sharks, and What About The Seals?

“Rhode Island’s Great White Sharks, and What About The Seals?,” with Jon Dodd, executive director of the Atlantic Shark Institute. The white shark is an iconic species that is found world-wide, but with a declining population—classified as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Jon’s presentation will focus on the shark research that the Atlantic Shark Institute has been conducting in our nearby ocean ecosystem and why sharks are important, as well as the growing population of seals that has caught the attention of the ASI team and research partners.
