Sharks in the River 2
September 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
During the summers of 2017 and 2018 (and a little bit of 2019) a group of researchers went looking for sharks in the Cape Fear River.
Dr. Charles Bangley (Smithsonian Environmental Research Center), will be presenting the results of the Cape Fear River Shark Survey, which was conducted in collaboration with UNC Wilmington and the North Carolina Aquariums Society. Learn which shark and ray species call the Cape Fear River home. Learn where they can be found. Also, what they’re doing during their time in the river. This is an all-ages event. However, if you’re of legal drinking age $1 of every Shark N’ Stormy beer will benefit the North Carolina Aquariums Society’s research fund. It supports research like the Cape Fear River Shark Survey! Come on out and learn about your local elasmobranch community!
