Long Island’s White Shark Research—SOFO’s Shark Research and Education Program Update with Greg Metzger: Adult/Teen

Saturday, January 26, 2019

10:30 am

Program Presenter: Greg Metzger, Chief Field Coordinator for the SOFO Shark Research and
Education Program

SOFO is one of the newest organizations to begin studying the large coastal sharks found along the
south shore of Long Island. We have been specifically targeting young-of-the-year white sharks for
electronic tagging purposes. The tags have begun to give us information on their movement at this
stage of their life cycle. This lecture will update the public on the highlights of the 2018 field
season, as well as what we have learned over our four years of work.
