Pacific Shark Research Center at Sharktoberfest

Get a crash course in shark science and conservation with a pair of talks by researchers from the Pacific Shark Research Center: Program Director Dr. Dave Ebert, who has made finding “lost” sharks his life’s work, and Shark Week’s Vicky Vásquez, who named the ninja lanternshark. Head to the planetarium at 6:30pm for a spin around the world and learn about some of the new shark discoveries over the past year with Dr. Dave Ebert. Then, travel to some of the Pacific Ocean’s most remote islands and marine national monuments during a special screening of Hidden Pacific, followed by a panel featuring its director, Ian Shive, and hosted by David McGuire, Shark Stewards founder and director. Elsewhere, rub elbows with other ocean conservationists who are working to protect threatened shark populations near home.
