Shark Research Committee hosts lecture
The Shark Research Committee Presents Sharks & You ....Is It Safe?
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 September, 2012 : - - The Shark Research Committee is attempting to raise enough in donations to commence their new carnobacterium project and a white shark PAT program. The carnobacterium project concerns the numbers of stranded juvenile sharks along the coast and the infection of their central nervous system by this unique bacteria and whether it is transmittable to other marine organisms. The PAT tags will allow Shark Research Committee to compile additional information of juvenile and adult white shark movements along the Pacific Coast of North America.
Why are there so many shark sightings in Southern California? Are you safe near seals or dolphins? Do Great White Sharks mistake humans for prey? Why do Great White Sharks bite surfboards and kayaks? Why should I care about sharks? How can I help - "Save the Sharks - Save the Oceans"?
These questions, any many more, will be answered Thursday, September 27, 2012, 7:00 PM at The Neurosciences Institute Auditorium, located at 10640 John Jay Hopkins Drive, La Jolla, California 92121. Join Ralph Collier, of the Shark Research Committee, for a multi-media presentation and journey into the world of the shark. Open Forum to Follow. Seating is limited.
Tickets $10.00/person at the door. All proceeds go to support the Shark Research Committee's Conservation, Education, and Research Programs. The SRC is a 501 c 3, tax-exempt, non-profit, scientific research corporation founded in 1963.
