Mote Marine Laboratory will offer a live Google Hangout with shark scientists aboard the M/V OCEARCH on Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 2:00 pm-3:00pm ET.

• Education Packet and connection details: http://www.seatrek.tv/live

OCEARCH and its team of collaborating scientists, including Dr. Robert Hueter, Director of the Center for Shark Research at Mote Marine Laboratory, are embarking on a three-week expedition to tag mature great white sharks. The expedition will run from Feb. 22 - March 15 in waters off South Carolina and possibly North Carolina and Georgia.

This is OCEARCH's 28th expedition and first of 2017. It will facilitate research projects by scientists at multiple universities and marine laboratories.

The team’s goal is to gather data on the biology, ecology, physiology and behavior of sharks in the Atlantic Ocean. They hope to increase the sample size for great white shark research, to gain a more complete picture of white shark movements, habitats, life history and conservation challenges in the Atlantic.

Subject Areas
• Life Sciences

Ocean Literacy Principles
• OLP #5 The ocean supports a great diversity of life and ecosystems

Join us online for Sharks Alive! This program is a live, two-way interactive program focused on shark research at Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium. We begin with an overview of shark husbandry and training at our aquarium and the research technology we use. The program will end with a Q&A session with our ocean expert.

Participants will enjoy a virtual shark training session with Mote aquarium biologists; identify reasons why we train sharks and other animals in human care discover husbandry and training techniques biologist use to manage animals in human care, learn about the technology we use to study sharks in the wild, engage in a discussion with our ocean expert about sharks or other ocean animals and develop an appreciation for sharks and their important ecological role.
