The Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS group offers a talk on the sharks off our shores. “Sharks of the Oregon Coast” takes place online on Thursday, May 6 at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to all.
The speaker is Taylor Chapple, an Assistant Professor at Oregon State University working to increase our understanding and appreciation of sharks off the Oregon coast and around the world. His background is in population modeling of highly mobile species, notably the white shark. He is focused on shifting the current mantra from fear and apprehension of sharks to one of awe and inspiration - there is more to sharks than just pointy teeth! He has worked all over the planet engaging people, through science, television, magazines and technology, to think differently about the predators in their backyard.
