Tracking White Sharks! An Update on Population Changes off the West Coast of North America
August 11, 2021
Dr. Salvador Jorgensen, Marine Ecologist, University of California, Santa Cruz
This presentation will detail the latest developments in a long-term study of the northeast Pacific great white sharks. A combination of management practices and climate change have led to range shifting and population fluxes among juvenile and adult white sharks. These changes, along with surprising interactions with other predators, underscore the dynamic nature of this cryptic top predator and its important role in coastal and ocean ecology.
