Watch Fins, Flippers and Fish on Ustream, March 16, 7 p.m.


Great white sharks have been making waves recently in local media as their numbers increase in the waters around Cape Cod. Teacher, naturalist, author and photographer Peter Trull will reveal the intriguing relationships between this charismatic apex predator, its major local food source – gray seals, and humans. Trull’s striking photographs along with evocative historic ones illustrate a complex story of ecological ties and human responsibility. Join Goldenrod Foundation on Ustream to view Fins, Flippers and Fish: The Delicate Balance Between Cape Cod’s Great White Sharks, Seals and Fishermen.
