    Global Shark Finning Crisis and Its Implications for Marine Ecosystems

    Join us on Tuesday, September 16 for our first fall program which will focus on Shark ConservationJoe Cavanaugh, a local marine scientist, will share his research into the global shark finning crisis.

    As top predators, sharks are essential pieces of the marine ecosystem puzzle in many parts of the ocean. Many shark populations are declining, even facing extinction in some areas.

    Joe will discuss:
    • Impact that shark finning has on sharks and their marine ecosystems.
    • Social and economic aspects of the shark fin industry as well as the extent of the global shark finning trade. 
    • Recent signs for hope in the form of successful campaigns aimed at changing cultural perceptions.
    • Feature messages of complex economic, ecological and cultural change that are present in many of the conservation challenges that we face.
    Join us in September for what is sure to be an enlightening discussion.
