Seals and sharks play very important roles in our Blue Planet, as mesopredators, apex predators and early indicator species, but they were nearly extirpated in our local waters. Since protections were put into place, these animals have begun to rebound and are more visible on our coast; a true conservation success story!
In this webinar, you’ll learn about shark and seal species in New England waters, about the newly deployed acoustic detection buoys in New Hampshire, and more.
You’ll have the opportunity to submit your questions to the experts during the webinar!
