"While my interest in natural history has added very little to my sum of achievement,
it has added immeasurably to my sum of enjoyment in life." - Theodore Roosevelt
All Programs Held at the Cold Spring Harbor Library Unless Otherwise Noted
Before our June program, Long Island White Shark Research by speaker Chris Papparo, we will be hosting a nature photography fundraising event by Huntington High School student, Alexa Helburn.
All proceeds will benefit the Women in Agroecology Leadership Conservation Program in Guatemala, where we sponsor Mayan girls to continue learning about the importance of environmental conservation.
Your participation will be supporting an aspiring new photographer and HOBAS at the same time.
Thank you for your support!
Our coastal waters have an abundance of sharks, all of which we know very little about. In 2015, a small group of researchers were the first to deploy a satellite tag on a juvenile great white shark off Long Island’s south shore. Over the subsequent two summers, a partnership with OCEARCH enabled them to tag an additional 20 white sharks off Montauk. In this presentation, we’ll learn about the continued work of the Shark Research and Education Program of the South Fork Natural History Museum.
Our speaker, Chris Papparo is a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer. His passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led him to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and currently manages the new Marine Sciences Center at Stony Brook University. Chris is also an award-winning freelance writer for several fishing, hunting, and wildlife related publications.
