White Sharks I have Known, Loved, and Learned From

A Roger Williams Park Zoo Wine & Cheese Conservation Lecture

This Conservation Lecture has already passed. Please check back soon for information regarding upcoming lectures in 2015.

Get an inside look at one of the most feared and misunderstood species on the planet during an evening of red wine and white sharks with Dr. Greg Skomal. A white shark researcher for more than 30 years, Dr. Skomal has had the incredible opportunity to study white sharks in South Australia, Mexico, Florida, and at home in New England. His revoluntionary work with undersea tracking technology and his study of Great Whites off the coast of Massachusetts have even been featured on the Discovery Channel's Shark Week!

Copies of Dr. Skomal's book, The Shark Handbook: The Essential Guide to Understanding the Sharks of the World will be available for purchase and signing.
