Kristen Kibblehouse:
"Atlantic White Shark Conservancy"

This program provides an overview of the work of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. The lecture covers a wide range of topics -from public perception of sharks to the role of sharks in our marine ecosystem. The ongoing white shark research taking place off the coast of Cape Cod is explained in detail, as well as how that research is connected to white shark conservation. The program wraps up with a discussion on how the presence of white sharks close to shore has specifically affected the Cape Community

Kristen Kibblehouse works as the Community Engagement Manager for the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC). AWSC is a nonprofit organization supporting scientific research, educating the community, and improving public safety surrounding white sharks. Kristen attended Coastal Carolina University where she received her degree in Marine Science and aided in her university’s shark research program. Kristen has been with the AWSC since 2016. Since then, she has been involved in education, outreach, and research related to the white shark work being conducted off Cape Cod. She has recently been featured on the Today Show and Channel 7 News Boston highlighting the AWSC’s white shark ecotourism program. She is a diver (even though she does not go nearly as much as she would like to). Her most recent dive was a cage dive with white sharks at Guadalupe Island, Mexico back in October.

Please join us for the MetroWest Dive Club's General Meeting for the presentation.
