There was nothing fishy about Dr. Tom Burns presentation to the Mattacheese students and staff this morning. Dr. Burns has been hooked on sharks ever since he was a child. Two years ago, he developed the Cape Cod White Shark Predation Study to investigate his premise that white sharks hunt seals differently off Cape Cod shores targeting prey in much shallower environments than previously documented. It sounds like a great orca-nization.
Thinking there were bigger fish to fry, Dr. Burns collaborated with National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry on National Geographic Wild’s “Mission Critical – Sharks Under Attack.”
It was all going swimmingly with a great speaker and an engaged, respectful audience. Everyone really sunk their teeth into the topic, so we were disappointed when the presentation was fin-ished.
Dr. Burns, thank you for your awesome presentation on sharks! You left us chomping at the bit for more.
