The program is a live, two-way interactive program focused on shark research at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. We begin with an overview of shark husbandry and training at our aquarium and the research technology we use. We end with a Question and Answer session with our Ocean Expert.

Objectives: Students will participate in a virtual shark training session with our aquarium biologists; identify reasons why we train sharks and other animals in human care discover husbandry and training techniques biologist use to manage animals in human care; learn about the technology we use to study sharks in the wild; engage in a discussion with our ocean expert about sharks role in the ocean ecosystem; develop an appreciation for sharks and their important ecological roles.

Technology required: We are open to connection with any technology platform. We can easily connect via Google Hangout, Skype, Blackboard Collaborate, Zoom, H.323 (Polycom/Cisco/Lifesize, etc.), and more. If you don’t see your preferred connection technology listed here, please contact us to see how we can best meet your needs.

We suggest a minimum of 10 students and a maximum of 35 students for optimum interactivity
