The Shark Identification Network is heading to Newfoundland–well, parts of it anyways–on June 3rd to start speaking with whale watch operators, fishing charters and others that spend their time on the water, about SIN. We’ll be starting in Twillingate, heading to Lewisporte, visiting Trinity, Witless Bay, St. John’s, Conception Bay, Carbonear and Dildo. It’s going to be a whirlwind tour—according to google maps, it will be about 17.5 hours of driving! But we’re looking forward to the gorgeous scenery and checking out places we’ve never been. And of course, meeting with folks that spend so much of their time on the water, always on the look-out for marine life! Lots of people we’ve been speaking with have been telling us about the different sharks they’ve seen over the years, and many people told us that they’ve seen a lot more sharks in recent years than ever before. We anticipate a lot of shark sightings this summer from Newfoundland!
We’re also going to be giving a talk about sharks for World Oceans Day on Friday, June 6. Parks Canada and Oceans Learning Partnership have organized an evening of food, music, and film–with a bit of science thrown in. This kick off to Oceans Day will be held at the Visitors Centre on Signal Hill, beginning at 7pm. Please join us if you can!!!
