Why Sharks Matter
No items found.


Sharks fill us with terror and awe… yet there is still so much we don't know about them. With over 500 different species inhabiting our planet, they are as diverse in size and appearance as they are in behavior!


Join marine biologist Melissa Cristina Márquez as she dives into the secret lives of sharks, from their past to their perilous present. Through vivid photography and enthralling videos, Melissa will cover the basic anatomy of sharks, the role(s) they play in our lives, and the threats they currently face. This talk will also provide tips to decrease your already small chance of becoming a victim of a shark bite and actions YOU can take today to better care for our oceans.


This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in wildlife and human-wildlife relationships. At the end of the seminar, there will be an opportunity for Q&A!
