No longer a rarity in this region, white sharks are frequently spotted off Cape Cod beaches each summer. While scientists welcome the opportunity to learn more about the species, there is a safety risk for humans recreating in the water. On The Point, we discuss a collaboration with scientists, towns, and the Cape Cod National Seashore, for public safety and education about white sharks.
Guests on the program are Greg Skomal, Marine Fisheries scientist and white shark specialist, and Nathan Sears, the Natural Resources Manager for the town of Orleans. Mindy Todd hosts. Here are links for information on Shark Safety, a sharktivity map, and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy website.
