Despite their scary appearance, sand tiger sharks are docile ocean animals that pose no real threat to humans which will be discussed in the lecture, “Sharks in Our Backyard: The Resurgence of Sand Tiger Sharks in New England.” Although it has a rich history in New England, this species has declined due to threats like overfishing and has rarely been observed in our region during recent decades. However, a significant number of juvenile sand tigers returned to local waters in the last five to 10 years. Come learn about the biology, conservation, and fascinating resurgence of this species in our own backyard.
